Glevy's Playground

GLevy, Artist

I have been a teacher, an architect and am now a digital collections consultant.  Through it all I have been exploring perceptions, including visual ones.  My explorations of color and texture started when I was very young and could not decide if a tree should be bare, green or orange and so I made it all of that with many layers of crayon. I won a prize for that one.  I left crayons for work with with fiber in the 1970’s back in Cambridge, Ma and then in 1992 I discovered paint. I had been doing figure drawing for years, but the instructor at SFAI snuck in color. From that exposure, I have continued to experiment with how best to use color, still also adding textures from collage elements or my brushes.  My latest piece in the studio has now come full circle as experimentation with encaustic and crayons.
