Dear Friends and Fellow Artists,

I hope your new year is off to a great start.  Despite my perpetually lying on Instagram about my location (like posting pictures from my November trip to India weeks after I returned), I have indeed returned to home and have been quietly painting, planning and immersed in life. 

I took the above picture Inside the City Palace Museum which is across the water of the Lake Palace in Udaipur, India. There are rooms of walls just covered with Indian miniatures which chronicle the court life of the Mewar family who still rules after seventy six generations -- the oldest dynasty in the world. You can spot how the introduction of perspective and portraiture seeped into the way artists depicted events at pivotal moments after the British came and gave art as gifts. *Sigh*

My upcoming solo exhibition, "I Notice People Disappear", which will be held at ArtHouse 429 in Florida, is a body of work that has been unfolding in my mind ever since I lived briefly lived in India years ago. The show runs from Feb 6 - March 6, 2014 with the opening reception February 6, 6:30 - 8:30 PM.

But immediately I must tell you that I will be in NY THIS WEEK, to attend a group exhibition I am participating in curated by legendary feminist artist and writer Mira Schor entitled â€˜â€A Womanhouse” Or A “Roaming House” A Room Of Ones Own Today’ at the A.I.R Gallery in New York.  A.I.R. Gallery. January 9 – February 2, 2014.  Opening reception is this Thursday, January 9th, 6 - 9 pm.

I hope I get a chance to see you at one of these exhibitions. If not, you can follow me here where I post pieces of my paintings and pretend to be places I'm not.

Happy New Year!

Kindest Regards,


PS I relaunched my artist website here.
