ARTIST BIOGRAPHY

I have traveled the world over, from Paris to Algiers to Dar-es-Salaam to Tokyo, Saigon and Ankhor Wat. I have had multiple careers as journalist, translator, jeweler, writer of travel books and books for young adults. I started painting in Paris and continued in New York at the Art Students League. I will have a solo show in Paris at La Petite Galérie from March 31 to April 12, 2014, of landscapes and cityscapes of California and New York.

ARTIST STATEMENT

All painting represents life, whether of people, objects, nature or the intangible. I try to go beyond the contours to understand the inner workings, the deeper reality of whatever faces me.
