Life Imitates Art
My connection to art history and images of various cultures is a theme throughout my work. Selections from three decades of juxtaposing photographs of contemporary people found by chance from all walks of life with their antecedents in paintings, one hundred, were published in book form in 2015 entitled “Life Imitates Art”. Currently, social issues of global warming and modernization destroying habitats upon which wildlife depend has led me to call attention to the beauty and richness of our animal legacy on our planet by drawing portraits of endangered species of animals in pastels and colored pencils from photographs. Art history and love of animals came together in four large panels commissioned by the Los Angeles Department of Cultural Affairs and permanently installed at the Harbor Animal Care in San Pedro, CA.
