MODERNIST MIXED MEDIA ART

After a thiry-year publishing career in New York, Boston and Los Angeles, I discovered painting.  Not coincidentally, I turned to painting after moving to Santa Fe, New Mexico, a site that has inspired many of my favorite artists.  Following a Modernist tradition, I work in a variety of mediums for I love the transparency of watercolor, the velvety textures of pastel and the buttery consistency of oil.
