I’m an artist/designer, designer/artist. For me, the boundaries between art and design are blurred. I’ve always been attracted to that edge between functional design, craft, and fine art.
My training in two- and three-dimensional design at the Rudolph Schaeffer School of Design coincided with studies in painting and drawing at UC Berkeley Extension in San Francisco under Norman Stiegelmeyer. I spent my formative years in San Francisco in the late sixties and early seventies—a time when all boundaries were becoming blurred and the attitudes of other cultures were being infused. The Japanese aesthetic in particular often finds its way into my work.
In this current body of mixed media collages, I use acrylic paint, heavily textured papers, and organically flowing Sumi ink in strong abstract images.
The work is currently being shown in a pop-up gallery at Istina 168 Lake Street South, Kirkland, WA 98033.
