First Drawings at Flying Saucers Caffeine and Art


It was early January of this year and all of a sudden I was going to have a show, at Flying Saucers in Santa Monica.  As this was going to be the case, I decided it was only fair I start drawing over there.  This is the first drawing I made at Flying Saucers.  I find myself looking back at it a lot in my sketchbook. Once you have experience drawing a place, or any subject, you get better at it, but you also lose some innocence in relation to it, as it were.

Back in the US: Drawing Around Town

Basically this is a stealth operation.  I really don't want people to know what I am doing, partly because the drawings are so much better that way.  So, I need to find a place (usually where people eat but sometimes places like the bus) where I can draw what I want without being discovered, at least by those I am sketching.

En route from Toronto to Los Angeles


These are the women next to me on the plane home.  It's amazing to me that I can be staring at a person next to me, or across a table, for quite a while, drawing them, and they never appear to notice me, at least they never let me know it.  Maybe they are just being kind and letting me draw them, but I think they are just concentrating on what they are doing.  Whatever the reason, I appreciate it.  And this about wraps up my November Canadian trip!

So this is where my show will be!  You can see that the brick wall is where the work goes. (A lot of work went into exposing that brick wall). Flying Saucers is a neighborhood cafe/gallery that has a very relaxed, friendly atmosphere where you always feel welcome.  It has great coffee and people really do hang out there, eat, work, talk.  It seems a perfect place for my current drawings, which I made onsite at various cafes, bars, and other eating establishments around Santa Monica. I like it as a place to show work because instead of most galleries where the work stares at you and while you may like it, once you see it there isn't much reason to stay, here you can "live" with the work while you do other things.  You can see it over real time, consider your reaction without feeling rushed into an opinion.

Remembrance Day, Nov. 2010

It was November 11, 2010, Veteran's Day in the US and Remembrance Day in Canada.  I never knew it was called that, but being half Canadian I like knowing those little facts.  What was most interesting to me were all the people wearing those little plastic red flowers with a black center.


Montreal in November, 2010


Several years ago my sister brought me a small blank notebook from Italy with a beautiful blue and white stenciled paper cover.  I loved it and wished I had some special use for it.

Painted Xerox Collage


It was January of 2010 and I walked into my shared studio space to find a letter saying after 34 years we had lost our lease.

published About 2011-06-18 16:13:00 -0700


I have always drawn. Originally from Beverly Hills, California I received my B.A. from the University of Michigan, Ann Arbor in 1975 with a major in Russian and East European Studies and my M.A. in Education, with a specialty in art, from Stanford University in 1976.  After graduation I settled in Santa Monica, California, teaching art K-12.  I got married, then raised three children and as time went on did more and more art work.  In 2014 I began the MFA program at Otis College of Art and Design and in 2016 received my MFA in Fine Arts. Since then I have continued to develop my practice of drawing.
