Caley O’Dwyer

The excitement and wonder of art making drive my work as much now as they did when I was a kid. I am a visual artist and writer (primarily poetry), a therapist in private practice, and (for the past 25 years) a teacher in Southern California universities. In these endeavors, in my daily life, and in the pools of memory that both haunt and delight experience, I find the inspiration for my work. My paintings come from many different interests but I am particularly drawn to people and the challenges and magic of urban life. I appreciate human tenderness and goodwill, and in my work I find a sense of calm that hopefully extends to the viewer. I love color, lines, shape, and intersections between digital and handmade art. My paintings often start from photographs or digital work that is rendered in oil or acrylic or both and pieces started on canvas are frequently figured digitally and reworked, in a process of back and forth between the digital and the real. More and more I think my work is essentially about love.
