UGS Faculty Caley O’Dwyer Featured in “VoyageLA”

Caley O’Dwyer, Psychology and Creative Writing faculty in the Undergraduate Studies Department, was featured in a profile story in VoyageLA.

VoyageLA provides an intimate look into the lives of myriad kinds of artists all over Los Angeles,” says O’Dwyer. “I was delighted to be featured in the East LA section of the magazine for their ‘Inspiring East LA Stories’ series.”

O’Dwyer is a poet and a painter. His poetry collection, Full Nova, was published in 2001 by Orchises Press and poetry on the paintings of Mark Rothko has been on display at the Tate Modern Museum in London and published in numerous literary journals, including Alaska Quarterly ReviewPrairie Schooner, Cream City Review, Hayden’s Ferry Review, Ekphrasis, and others. O’Dwyer’s paintings have been on display at a number of spaces in Los Angles, including at Bergamot Station, ArtShare LA, and other venues.

Alongside his teaching and writing, Caley provides strength-based therapy in his private practice in downtown Los Angeles, where he helps people draw upon their hopes, skills, interests and values to renegotiate relationships with problems and create new, preferred life possibilities. Caley is particularly interested in helping people whose lives don’t seem to and/or don’t want to match up with dominant cultural expectations.

“The interview process gave me a chance to articulate some things I’m not sure I’d had a chance to say before and it was rewarding on that level,” added O’Dwyer.
