Welcome     Artists        Exhibitions       Press      

Dear Friends,

As we enter 2020  and contemplate its significance , I reflect  upon the recent events in my life that have led me so much further on my path.  In the last year and a half, my work and my purpose has accelerated to light speed trajectory!  I  participated in a solo exhibition at the  Human Security and Just Governance Forum in Caux, Switzerland; I was invited to be the artist on board a scientific expedition in Raja Ampat, Indonesia; my work was exhibited in Beijing, Shanghai and Shenzhen, China; and I attended  Starmus , an astrophysics festival with astronauts, scientists, musicians and Nobel Prize recipients in Zurich! 

In addition to my travels around the world, my gallery,  Hilton | Asmus Contemporary, has gained considerable momentum on the international stage.  Our clients hail from Norway to Australia, Singapore to Sweden and nearly every state in the United States. We participated in art fairs from Aspen to Chicago; exhibitions for Blake & Boky Ward, Julian Wasser, David Gamble and David Yarrow. The words "never a dull moment" rang true every moment, in and out of my gallery.   

One of my proudest moments was to be named Global Leader Honoree for 2019-2020 by my favorite international nonprofit, GREENHEART INTERNATIONAL. 

I was, and still am, deeply humbled and proud to follow in the footsteps of such luminaries as Nobel Peace Prize co-recipient Jerry White; Hungarian philosopher of science, father of systems theory AND twice nominated for the Nobel Peace Prize, Dr. Ervin Laszlo; and former executive The Hunger Project, Lynne Twist, who helped raise hundreds of millions of dollars in over 30 countries to alleviate hunger worldwide.  All of them are committed to a thriving  just and sustainable world.  

My commitment to Greenheart in 2020 is to help carry out their important mission to empower international youth to become tomorrow's futures leaders.
