"I escaped reality at a very young age by creating my own world with ink and paint. I still remain in that world. I prefer it there as the real world is just too harsh." NS
My art is unstructured, unplanned, unrefined, untrained, full of feeling and life and love and hope. It has always been and remains purely an expression of what I see, what I feel, what I love. It contains places and things I vaguely recall but have never seen.
What I draw and paint has always comes out as just a little magical, dreamlike and maybe just a bit off...the way I like life to be.
A bit of personal background:
I was born and raised in New York City then moved to L.A. to work in the film industry. I moved to Nashville after the big quake of 94' destroyed my place in Los Angeles.
I was accepted based on my artistic ability to both the High School of Art and Design and the High School of Music and Art in New York. I later attended Fordham University at Lincoln Center.
A partial list of professional work; I worked for Christopher (Superman) Reeve for years as his assistant. I worked in the New York Theater, research assistant for author Jean Stein, at Aaron Spelling Productions, production assistant to the actress, heiress, socialite Dina Merrill , assistant to actor David Keith , freelanced as a script analyst for film companies, an extras wrangler and did bit parts in a few films. That's a few of the ways I've earned a check in my time.
I've road tripped across the country twice in my life and was a witness in the O.J. Simpson trial. I've known the great, the interesting, the brilliant and the talented as well as the good, the bad and the ugly.
I've learned that with every one of life's losses there can also be great gains. I believe in little miracles and things that can't be explained by practical people. I've had cancer and at the moment I don't.
There have been a lot of adventures. Many amazing people and moments. Miracles and disasters.
Now bits of all of it is in my art.
I've lived in such a way as to make a lot of my dreams come true against the odds.
Thank you for stopping by....xoxn
