The Studio Cat has retired to a comfortable home life.
My studio was in Laguna Canyon for over 30 years, and has been the site of dozens of exciting glass workshops year-round. I exhibited in the Sawdust Art Festival for 23 consecutive years. I served for 7 years as Chair, 2 years as Trustee, for the Sawdust Art Enrichment Fund.
Artistic ventures are now created in my Laguna home, with PUnkin at my side!
About the Artist
Born into the exuberant post-war era, I saw the middle-American lifestyles becoming a little less conventional, the binds of tradition loosening. Bold new patterns and unprecedented color combinations were revitalizing American decor. Architecture was defying gravity with wild angles and pronounced shapes. Pan-Asian and Tiki influences provided a hep vibe.
Through cultural revolutions, including the civil-rights movement, the Vietnam War, the struggle for gender equality, and the fall of Communism, my generation developed a defiance of the norm with outlandish culture and pronounced urbanity.
Whether it is cosmic 50’s, psychedelic 60’s, graffiti 70’s, or the aging boomers’ desire for a simpler “Feng Shui” way of life, I strive to capture the exhilarating mood that defined my life.
I love working with color and texture. I continually learn new techniques that keep my art work evolving, energetic and exciting.
I live and work in Laguna Beach, California. My Artwork resides with many prominent private collectors in California, Texas, New York, and internationally. I also have taught Art Classes in the technique of Glass Art.
