Working in art journalism, I am privileged to know a world infused with color, light, form, texture and the often-intense emotions of artists as translated onto canvas, photo paper, wood, clay or any material. I converse with those who draw inspiration from genres as diverse as the dada movement to abstract expressionism. They pay homage to these influences in their own works, filtering them through the prisms of their inner muses.
I am a writer, art critic and editor, reviewing and reporting on art exhibitions, and profile artists, museum and gallery directors and curators.
My recent articles include: Crosscurrents in LA Painting and Sculpture at Getty Museum, UCI and the Development of Contemporary Art, Creating the Great Picture exhibition, Richard Jackson at Orange County Museum of Art and Tom Dowling. Here are my "Huffington Post" "Capital Crimes" review and NY Armory Show article. I write book chapters on the visual arts, edit books on the visual arts and music, and write the content for Contemporary Art Dialogue.
You can read more of my art journalism reviews in ArtScene, Art Ltd. Magazine and Artillery Magazine. I also review art for Riviera, Women in the Arts, Orange County Register, Orange Coast and more.
Museum of Modern Art
As a teenager, I haunted NYC museums, particularly the Museum of Modern Art, and later worked in general journalism, covering food, fashion, business and art, touring museums in my spare time. In 2000, I became the OC Metro (in Orange County, CA) art columnist, and soon graduated to reviewing art for major publications.
Today, I live in Laguna Beach, California where I often attend the Festival of Arts and Pageant of the Masters. I also tour art exhibitions throughout Southern California, including dozens of Pacific Standard Time exhibitions from 2011 through the spring 2012. I reviewed/reported on several of these shows. See also Art in the Streets page (an exhibition at MOCA where the above picture was taken).
I am a member of AICA, International Association of Art Critics. Here is my facebook page link: facebook..
