I have always used art to help clarify what I think and feel, and to interpret and contextualize the outside world. My involvement with art of all kinds, both as a practioner and observer, shapes my perspective in an ongoing and fluid way. I have started this blog to share this journey,  and to engage others whose experience is similar, in a continuous dialogue.
I received an A.B. from Harvard University in Fine Arts, doing my honors thesis on Cezanne’s Self Portraits. I also received an MFA from UCLA in Theatre Arts, in film production. I directed and co-wrote the western, “Shoot the Sun Down” with Christopher Walken & Margot Kidder.
I am currently a sculptor, painter, and poet, and divide my time between Martha’s Vineyard and Los Angeles. I enjoy swimming, cycling, golf, tennis, and yoga.

    Run by the same person who runs Fashion Photography Blog mentioned above, I couldn’t avoid putting
    her portfolio blog in. In this article, I am going to help you with
    downloading themes for your Dotclear blog.

    Came across your blog when looking at Morandi’s work and I so appreciated your sensitive and informative perceptions. At first I thought “this must be a woman speaking, but then realized instead it was an unusual man, in Australian terms anyway (where I live)”. Thanks so much. Louise
