"Cycles": Colored vitreous enamels fired on float glass, gold leaf and silver leaf, and L.E.D. lights with computerized components including an astronomical clock moving night time illumination.

The Glass Tower is in the heart of campus and easily used for way-finding, from both near and far. By day it is a reverse painting on glass, the reflective qualities of gold leaf, glass beads and the frosted glass catch natural light and cloud's movement. By night it becomes a beacon that illuminates from within and changes upon the hour. Cycles uses a uses a vocabulary of simple, abstract circular organic and geometric shapes that symbolize personal, community and generational relationships to the University.

"I like being in the water - that is a source of inspiration and I'm obsessed by big bold graphic shapes that are icons for everyday life"

One thing leads to another,
I started in a loft in downtown LA painting billboards and backdrops in the studios. This lead to hotel commissions painted on a large scale, which led to huge public art commissions. Meanwhile I swim everyday which led to my women in water series, which are shown at galleries from Martha's Vineyard, to New York to Hawaii and placed in various museums.
