I have been writing poetry since 1967, painting since 1975, and writing for the theatre since 1987. My mother, a junior editor for Glamour and Vogue in the sixties, owned Gallery Esme in New York for a few years. Through my mother, I met Andy Warhol and art critic David Bourdon. The true painter in my family is daughter Ciara Shuttleworth. But I paint regularly and some paintings find their way into people’s homes. I have been told that what I do with paint is Repesentational Expressionism. My greatest admiration is for the work of Lucian Freud.
