Dear Art Lover,

Spring flowers are blooming. Iris, tulips, and the flowering buds are all signals that spring is in the air. For me, this is a season of renewal and of hope that our world will heal from the conflicts it is currently facing. .

The exhibit "Bytes and Pieces" at the San Jose Institute of Contemporary Art was a huge success. Well over 1500 visitors came to view the work of 15 talented and diverse artists who embrace technology as a tool in their artmaking. I had an exciting week as artist-in-residence, where I crafted fine art prints and discussed the process of creating lenticular artwork. A broad range of people stopped in to learn more about the digital processes. A huge THANKS to the ICA for curating the exhibit and for facilitating a place for education about digital art.

I’ve spent the winter months working on a new body of work to be exhibited this month at my annual Silicon Valley Open Studio event. The series is titled Close to Home. This body of work takes a new direction and moves away from edition printmaking into the realm of mixed media digital one-of-a-kind pieces. This is quite exciting for me as I am finding ways to intersect traditional art making with digital processes.

The Santa Cruz Digital Arts Festival will be held during the month of April 2003 in a variety of locations around Santa Cruz county. You can find my piece titled Autumn Light at Union. In addition, I will be joining author and festival director Daryl Wise and artist Ileana Frómeta Grillo for a talk on the recently published book Secrets of Award Winning Digital Artists and will be joining a panel of artists to discuss some of the unique issues facing the digital artist

I was fortunate to meet the award-winning photojournalist John Isaac this week at Russell Brown’s annual ADIM conference. John spent 30 years as photojournalist for the United Nations, documenting human conditions around the world. His work stirs emotion and taps into our compassion. I invite you to spend some time with his images at his website
