Five generations of artistic mastery
The Ochs Art Archive
Hi, I'm the administrator for this site and also, the ex wife of Peter Paul Ochs. We were married for 24 years, and I mostly played the role of Muse to his genius...until I couldn't do it anymore. Many years later, as an old woman, I wrote a memoir, Rebel Muse, My Life with Peter Paul Ochs. I published it in 2018, and people tell me that it is a really excellent read. I've been a professional writer for most of my life, but since I wrote my Memoir (my third book), I've felt the urge to branch out, to do something different. Something beyond words, like art perhaps. Since I soon realized that at my age (nearly 80) I wouldn't be able to acquire the skills of drawing that Picasso claimed was the true mark of an artist, I concentrated on using my love of colour and abstract design with a new medium that was relatively easy, Alcohol Ink. The results are on this page; I hope you enjoy looking at them as much as I enjoyed creating them.
