I can thank my friends at Hidell Brooks Gallery for introducing me to the next Artist Spotlight Series feature.

This incredible talent is certainly the artist I plan to add to my collection in the near future.

These colorful abstract, layered beauties just speak to me and so many others as her work is becoming highly collected and covetable.

What is your training? 

I studied with Martin Lubner for eight years, Artist and Professor at UCLA that opened his own studio where he taught. Also at Otis.

And American University in Washington, but I didn’t get any art training there. 

What inspires you and your designs?

Early years I spent time watching rehearsals….waiting for my dad who worked for Shubert theaters, and “a world within a world” became present to me, and later carried it into a theme connected to the circus as well….representing the stage of life and many aspects existing beneath it.

A vocabulary of forms developed in my process, and I have been working with this language and allowing the freedom of it to explore different ways of building my images.

How has your area influenced your work?

The energy of NYC, having access to so much art, and having the ability to experience so many different types of artistic expression opens up new explorations for me all the time.

How do you balance personal life and work?

I spend every day making my art or looking at art. In between I spend time with friends and travel, like going to the beach this summer. This feeds me personally as well as creatively. I have an enormous passion for life itself which I believe is visible in my work.

Dream trip?

My dream trip would include traveling in Europe for six months to a year while developing a body of work for a show there.

Dream commission?

Building a sculptural piece for a public space.

Your favorite host / hostess gift to give?

Something that I think they would enjoy. I like giving things that are very personal.

Who is your style icon?

Both my daughters, as they have a personal style that reflects who they are along with tasteful selection of pieces. My daughter Irene who is an incredibly talented and successful jewelry designer is especially influential because she is so involved with the fashion world.
