About

I am a fine art and design artist, musician and recording artist.
I have an intense love of color and fluid abstract design; from early childhood on I remember wanting to be a fashion designer, and then gradually gravitating to painting and musical performance. It is only in recent years that I have returned to my dream of designing wearable art-- I began by painting on silk in the 1980s, but by 2000 I began to see the infinite possibilities of color printing and digitally altering my art. My creative journey is a continual process of experimenting with the delights, the accidents, and synchronicities that occur as one just keeps on creating and staying open to new opportunities and adventures. More recently I have fallen in love with digital fabric and mandala design, and the endless possibilities presented by combinations of these two artforms.

Music was my first love-- I began playing piano at five, and have been performing for over 30 years-- so it finds its way into all of my art, one way or another. Visual artwork is such a wonderful contrast to music for someone who is a performer--- the latter being so ephemeral in many ways. You create an improvisational music piece on the spot, and unless you happen to have been able to record it in that moment, it's 'lost and gone forever,' except in memory. Visual artwork, on the other hand, is tangible and when you finish a work you can put it on the wall and look at it for the next 25 years if you want to.
More than anything, I think my approach to art is and always has had a large spiritual component. I like to play, experiment, revel in color, and enjoy the energy and bliss that beautiful art can impart, but what I am always trying to express is the ineffable, invisible Infinite consciousness that lives in the heart of matter.
