All Fall Down

Shortly after I discovered photography as part of my job as a newspaper reporter, the camera became a tool for me to explore the body language of the female figure. Over time, a technique I developed blended photography with my other interests in painting, drawing and sculpture to create the final image.

I have been exhibiting my work in this country as well as in Europe and Asia for over thirty years. I received my M.F.A. degree at U.C.L.A. under the tutelage of Robert Heinecken, and in 1984 and 1988 I was awarded National Endowment for the Arts Fellowship Grants. A book of my work was published by Twin Palms Publishers in 1989.

My work is in the permanent collections of the Pompidou Centre Museum in Paris, the Chicago Art Institute, the Los Angeles County Museum of Art, the Minneapolis Institute of Arts, the San Francisco Museum of Modern Art, the Seattle Art Museum, and the Kiyosato Museum of Photographic Art in Japan, as well as other museum collections.
