Studio Visit via Dinette is a series of informal gatherings in my studio apartment in Los Angeles to talk about art with a special guest – mostly artists and sometimes other interesting people who work in the art field. With an artist, instead of visiting him or her in their studio space, I will try to bring a little taste of the studio visit experience to you. It won’t be an interview or a Q & A format. I’d like to create an atmosphere that feels like a simple dinner with a bunch of friends where, over delicious food and wine, you can ask questions, engage and learn from the artists directly about their work and connect with them on a more personal level.

Passionate about people with passions, I write about artists, their lives and artistic journeys; sometimes, I post my musings on exhibitions that speak to me. I don't believe in critiquing, but I believe in connecting. Knowing someone better hopefully leads to understanding, which also gives rise to a connection (intellectual, emotional or spiritual). People, who establish such a link with an artist, are more likely to want to live with their art. And, not only, often buying an artwork is a gesture of support for the artists we like and encouragement to keep creating. To quote Swiss curator, artist and art historian Harald Szeemann, "If the personal relationship is taken out, the dimension of intimacy, then the museum and art business gradually starts to become annoying."
