A Little Known Place, oil on canvas, 12 x 12 inches/ 30,5 x 30,5 cm
My paintings often appear to be moments stopped in time, like a long forgotten memory that is finding its way back. Layered with time between then and now it is possible that this memory might also be a dream.
As a stepping stone into the process, I work from photographs, or a sketch I did. Some of the photos are found in the family's closet, others I take of life around me. I combine the imagery with rendering it in a somewhat realistic way and other areas that are loose and more abstractly painted.
With a psychological touch of time, place, and nature there is a certain mystery to the stories of the paintings. They unfold in surprising ways, taking the viewers onto a path of their own of personal memory and imagination.

WORKS ON PAPER
The journals. A visual making of what's on my mind. These watercolor, color pencil, or pen and ink drawings are accompanied with writing and can be followed in my blog Once a week or so..
The Griffith Park mural. I painted it somewhat monochromatically, with warm and cooler grays and a hint of reds and pinks here and there. In the process I used everything from big palette knives, to rags, to fine paint brushes.
Formed and shaped in clay these sculptures then get cast in bronze or ceramic. The Rabbit ceramic sculptures have mixed media added as "ears" such as a gold leaf sun disc or a silver leafed moon seen below. The unicorn boar and lion are bronzes.
