A site for art that’s inspiring, thought-provoking, skillfully executed, and/or breathtakingly beautiful
What I do and why I do it
I constantly seek out art that’s inspiring, thought-provoking, skillfully executed, and/or beautiful so I can share it (in jargon-free language) with others who need and enjoy such art, but who don’t have time to search for it themselves. As an independent scholar, writer, and lecturer, I focus on art history and history, with forays into food, history, politics, and publishing.

What shall we talk about?
Here are the sort of questions that fascinate me:
- How do you go from a gut reaction to thinking about art – and why would you bother?
- Why is abstract art a waste of canvas, marble, bronze, neon tubing, chickenwire …?
- What’s the best way to introduce children to art?
Come on a tour and ask all the questions you like!
