I’m very excited to be writing again. A LOT has happened in the last few years. I have quite a bit of catching up to do. Before that happens, however, I want to jump right in and begin with one of the most prominent (and nerve wracking) experiences of my creative life: a feature in WHYY’s Articulate. The episode I was a part of was picked up by PBS within the last year. So, the excitement of this feature was given a new life.
(“Copper In Full Bloom” highlighted in the episode).
WHYY’s Articulate is an arts and culture show hosted by the wonderful Jim Cotter. It is described as such: “Articulate explores how creative thinkers help shape our understanding of the world.” I was in an episode highlighting portraiture alongside Kim Sajet, director of the National Portrait Gallery, and Alexandra Tyng, realist painter.
While extremely nervous before the cameras started rolling, I was immediately at ease chatting about my life as a painter, and photographer. You can see me being interviewed on the Articulate set and in my painting studio. When the episode aired I was beyond delighted. I am extremely proud to be a part of this program and, particularly, this episode.
“…and I could get John Singer Sargent to do my portrait, or Copley…or maybe Maria Teicher…”
