The Ojai Valley in California is my birthplace home and special muse. I lived in the Philippines for most of my childhood and as a student had the opportunity to study at art schools and studios in the United States, Japan and England. My primary concern in painting is to search for marks, passages and colors that mirror formative life experiences, narratives and vision.
Art is infinitely larger than the individual; though art makers bear much of the responsibility for carrying forward this uniquely human activity with thought, imagination and curiosity.
As a new OSA member I am keen to have the opportunity to open my studio for the Second Saturday event in July. In addition to paintings, I will be showing several sculptures from a new series of constructive projects. Steve Carter
