Paris opera ballet tour

Our second day in Paris – took a tour of the Palais Garnier, after a fantastic performance of La Source last night by the Paris Opera Ballet. Chagall’s famous painting in the dome of the theatre. The art everywhere was stunning. I started my career as a professional ballet dancer, cut short by an injury. But I remain devoted to ballet. My art is defined by movement and form – heavily influenced by dance.

Here they are!

paintings for Cardozo

I was asked to create something that reflects the multicultural diversity of Cardozo EC here in DC – the school I’m starting to teach at next week.

I came up with this tryptych of kids from all backgrounds, set in front of a cityscape.It’s based (loosely) on photographs of students in the school’s summer international academy. Each canvas is 48″h x 48″w. It’s going outside the library/media center. I’m excited! I hope people like it.

Maui is always inspirational

In the early 2000s, we spent many summers in Hawaii. If you look elsewhere on the site, you’ll see some of the dozens of paintings I did that were inspired by the awesomeness of Maui. Here we are today at the top of Haleakala, at 10,000 feet. It really does take your breath away in more ways than one.
