This series is based on my love of abstraction and the need to express my own reality. I am often mesmerized by the angles and protrusions that have become part of modern architectural design. For over forty years I have been an inhabitant of NYC. I never tire of the views I happen upon during my many lunch time walks. The ever evolving landscape keeps my eyes staring upward, like a seasoned tourist, I am constantly drawn to something new. Huge windows allowing the observer to be the voyeur. As if life is only relevant if it can be seen.
The mystery of glass, the transparency of lives, perhaps the next step beyond social media.

Encounters, Sing for Hope Pianos
In this project one hopes to have numerous encounters. People coming together over their love for music and playful nature. Hopefully it will unite people in a safe and joyful experience.
Callie is a MTA Art & Design for transit commission recipient, her work is on permanent display at 105 Beach Station in the Rockaways. Her love for nature and her respect for our planet are strongly felt in all her work.
It was such a wonderful experience to join the 49 other artists and spend three months creating together. I thank all the volunteers who assisted the artists, piano tuners and who participated in the piano parade on June 4th. Great work! Such a positive experience in a time of great need for music and art in our public schools. Art for all, to create and enjoy.

In the shallow waters of the sea, just off shore, creatures are hidden away. In tide pools, painted waters emerge, and while snorkeling, everything is up for discovery.
For all explorers, the sea is an open book. It is vital for our future survival on this planet we call earth. Long before earth even had a name, from it came all which inhabits land today. Let us take the time to appreciate all that is offers. Protect it from oil spills, plastic waste, and all that does not belong there. Let us all be more aware and appreciate what lessons it has to teach us.

Piano painting continues, dots have entered the scene, starting on the back, they will progress to the front and top of the piano soon.
It has come a long way since the early days of sanding and applying gesso. A bit trippy taking apart a piano, to sand and paint. The process of taking of something precious and reconstructing it. I am really enjoying each day I am able to go and sit amongst the other artists, with my headphones on and get totally lost in the creation process.
