I am first and foremost a Provincetown artist. It really doesn’t matter if the medium is paint, charcoal, ink, pencil, words, body or voice. I am shaped by Land’s End, salt-sprayed; imbued with the essence of life in a town that changes with the seasons, the weeks and the tides. Extremes. Hardship. Raw Beauty. Excess. This is at the heart of all of my work.
In 1992, at the School of the Museum of Fine Arts Boston, my drawing instructor and mentor asked me to choose between paint/charcoal or film/stage. I went for the medium of our times and am accomplished and awarded in film-making, acting for stage and screen as well as writing blogs, articles, plays, screenplays and the self-publishing guide "Confessions of an eBook Virgin: What Everyone Should Know Before They Publish on the Internet."
As if time-traveling back to that decisive moment twenty-two years ago in an art school cafeteria, I now turn toward the other fork in that road and begin again, ready to face how much painting and drawing scared me back then in what it reveals; how naked I feel.
