Studio Visit

My niece and nephew came over to make Valentines at my studio the other day. We had a great time! I taught Liliana how to curl ribbon with scissors while Vaughn twirled around us dressed in the ribbon and feathers he discovered on my shelves. Next time we are going to paint, maybe when they are older I will teach them about Jackson Pollack!


Something new

New painting-thinking about the broken pieces falling into one another- a few touches and it will be complete-

Visiting my Mother at Cedars Sinai hospital today. I brought peonies yesterday and today they were giving away red roses. Flowers perched on windowsills, basking in the sun invite a poetic moment in time… and they also make her feel good-

Went to Venice beach to buy t’shirts for my Cousin’s children I will meet in Vermont.

I just taught myself how to make a lei! This one is made of dendrobium orchids and sweet smelling hyacinths.

First hour of painting-just laying out the shapes.

RISD/LA Event at the Getty Center





Dinner time!



Liz and I hosted a RISD/LA event at the Getty Center this month with Exhibition Designer Elie Glyn. We met underneath the outdoor pergola for some refreshments while people arrived. Then Elie lead us into the museum where we were equipped with an earpiece to hear Elie’s lecture. Then he took us through a long corridor to his office which functions as both a Graphic Design and Exhibition Design studio. ¬†After about 20 minutes exploring that space we went to view the exhibition itself: Power and Pathos. Elie gave an exciting behind the scenes look at what goes into preparing a gallery space for people to view artwork, in this case ancient sculptures. The tour was followed by a 3 course prix fixe dinner at the Museum’s fine dining restaurant. As I looked across the tables I was filled with joy watching people excitably talk about their experiences at RISD, their own projects and the experiences they have had. Check out the Write up about the event I planned with Liz Lanphear at the Getty Center this summer for our RISD/LA Alumni-
