I have had a studio at Hunters Point Shipyard since 1997, first in Building 366 down in the main part of the yard near the crane, where all the metal working artists were located. For many years I created welded steel sculpture and furniture in that space. When the Navy kicked us all out of that building in 2006, I moved to Building 101, where I focused more on mixed media artwork, and photos based on landscape, architectural, aerial, and urban street imagery. I continued with my metal work at my home studio in Redwood City.

I also used to spend a lot of time herding pigeons, and I even wrote a book about it.

In March of 2023 my world turned upside down when I was diagnosed with ALS.

In July we went to Austin to spend a week at the home of close friends there. While there I had a lot of time to myself and a great working space on the second floor of their beautiful home. I took advantage of the time to read Rick Rubin’s book “The Creative Act: A Way of Being,” which opened the flood gates of a whole new body of work, started that week, captured in this gallery, and continuing to this day. This work, comprising more than 40 mixed media drawings ranging in size from 7″ x 10″ to 15″ x 22″, captures a visual expression of the expansion of the soul in the face of a relentless physical decline…
