Welcome! I am a poet and art critic. Among the many books and exhibition catalogues I've written are the internationally best-selling titles 100 Works of Art That Will Define Our Age and A New Way of Seeing: The History of Art in 57 Works, both published by Thames & Hudson.
I grew up in the San Francisco Bay Area and was educated at UCLA and Oxford University, where I earned my doctorate. I am a feature writer for BBC Culture and my writing on art appears regularly in publications such as Wired magazine, The Sunday Times, The Observer, The Independent, the RA Magazine and Art Quarterly.
