I’ve always been fascinated by social issues and how we react to certain people in our culture. The subject of celebrity is endlessly fascinating to me, especially how we elevate some arguably questionable people to a higher status. These 30 paintings were painted by me over the course of the last 25 years, and published in magazines such as Time, Rolling Stone, and The New Yorker.

“There’s a crack in everything; that’s how the light gets in” – Leonard Cohen, Anthem.
The difficult stuff in life has a way of tarnishing our lustre, hardening us or pulling us into our cocoons. So, too, the creative spirit easily gets crusted over from neglect, fear of failing, disappointments, or even by the safety of the tried and true.
How energizing to be reminded that there is potential for new beginnings and growth in the most rigid or stuck thoughts, or the crustiest scars left behind from the disappointments of life.
Experimenting with clay, painted fabric and acrylic, and discovering new ways of integrating these media, has cracked opened a window in my creativity and allowed the unexpected to flood in. I am enjoying the freedom that has come from blurring the boundaries of the traditional two dimensional canvas. As new pieces emerge and my techniques are honed, I am finding that the themes of beginnings, endings, transitions and transformations surface in the sculptural forms, shadows and textures. They call me to embrace the changes in my life, community and world, and to let the light shine where it will.

From the moment I first held clay in my hands, I knew that I had found my life’s passion. I have always been fascinated by the human face and it has become the sole source of my inspiration. When I am commissioned to sculpt a portrait, I concentrate on achieving both the likeness as well as the essence of my subject.
For this show however, instead of striving to accomplish a likeness, I set out to create sculptures that would show an array of different emotions. To my surprise, it was as though the sculptures came alive and decided for themselves which feelings they wanted to evoke. I will be interested in finding out the viewer’s thought as to what emotions the sculptures are conveying.
