During my first fifteen years of teaching, along with drawing, painting and two art history survey courses, I also taught a contemporary art history course. This portfolio contains a selection of works inspired by some of my favorite 20th c. Western abstract painters, including the de Koonings, Frankenthaler, Hesse, Hodgkin, Johns, Kiefer, Krasner, Pollock, Thomas, and others.
