"I’m what some would call a process artist. I may start with a particular idea, but ideas keep coming. I always respond to the process as the work progresses."
T's formal fine arts training began in Santa Monica High School. His work in clay and wood sculpture, painting and assemblage won honors in student exhibitions. He continued his art education at Santa Monica College and the more academically challenging Grossmont College in San Diego.
Since then, T has continued to create works of art with a focus on abstract painting. For the past 40 years, he has been a devoted labor and civil rights leader. His extensive travels in the U.S. and abroad, visiting the world’s great art museums and galleries, continues to inform his work.
He now splits his time between his primary studio in Palm Springs and his second home in Napa, CA.
