In 1999 I painted this piece by hand ~ meaning I didn’t use a brush. The painting endured unforgiving stressful changes resulting from very demanding heat & cold circumstances. I took it out & left it outside under the Sun, rushing it back to the fridge. And, just like me, the painting had no choice but to stay wise & wait for the right emotional balance. We made it through! The question is if a painting was your companion for years, is it wise to sell it? What do you do with the leftover emotional bonding?
I’m a writer, science artist & environmental educator. I lived in Morocco, France, and for the past 36 years in the San Francisco Bay Area. In July of 2020, I moved to the beautiful rural New Jersey to a small & adorable house on 1/2 acre. Each of these places and cultures had a unique influence on my writing & my art.
My mother was a dressmaker; her creations were my childhood window to colors, design, and texture. My father was a watchmaker and a fantastic storyteller. An expert in fixing traditional clocks and watches. In our house, the nicely placed authentic clocks were set to orchestral precision and were not touched.
As an artist, I have worked on color distribution to visualize observable natural facts, drawing from different fields in science. As a writer, I submitted short stories and received excellent reviews. My longtime issue is I can’t turn my stories to more than 3 pages. Submitting a 100-page script is like climbing Everest – without an oxygen mask!
Isolation helps me keep the flow of dialogue uninterrupted between my art and myself. For years I avoided influences from various art movements out of the conviction that I had to walk this path alone. Presently, working on a screenplay under the guidance of Hollywood Story–Mastering Michael Hauge and his team.
I published a book “Cooper The Compost Worm, The Butterflies Are Teasing Me.” The book earned special attention from the United States Environmental Protection Agency. The children I invited to created the book’s characters received certificates signed by President Barack Obama for outstanding achievement in environmental education.

Thanks for sharing images of your experimental artwork. It is truly brilliant. What an amazing idea to employ physical ideas to create your art. I am highly impressed. Your website design is phenomenal too; it really highlights the range of your work. I like the references to physicists who are very familiar to me. Yes I can see your art being used as a tool to help understand science. Have you had gallery exhibitions?
