The world is in a surreal state right now: intense change is afoot. I've found a good deal of solace in my studio and in my brushes. In addition to painting, I've felt more moved than ever to put words on paper, and have added a blog page to this website. Here you'll find accounts of my personal experiences here in Italy during the time of Covid-19. I hope to add another page soon with some of my other prose (and prose poetry), stories and reflections.
