The Very Same Train Station my mom and my grandma came into when they immigrated to the United States of America. Sadly this train station has been left to decay.

I am A media sculptor and painter. The work is an interchange between the intuitive and rational mind, weaving and balancing these two divergent ways of thinking. My approach is instinctive, capturing the “essence of things”.
The real value in my work lies in its hints and is drawn out through intuition. My artwork has been exhibited in San Francisco, Philadelphia, New Jersey, Washington, Sacramento, Stockton, St. Louis, Hungary, Ireland, Germany and Michigan.

    Hi Diane. Blame Is Never Good. Yep.
    Altho It Seems More & More In Our Society Need To Blame Someone Or Somebody. Over Here Anyway.
    We Will Be Entering Even Darker Times Over Here Soon. With Economic Cuts Etc.
    I’ve Always Found In These Times (Dark) People Start To Blame Races: Like In Germany In The Thirties It Was The Jewish People & Over Here In The Seventies It Was People Trying To Blame The Asian Community That Had Arrived From Uganda Etc.
    Even Here Now You Hear Comments About Polish People In The UK……..
    Altho A Lot Of These People Have Already Went Home Due To The Economic Climate.
    Believe It Or Not I Even Get It. Just Because My Accent Different.
    I Don’t Blame But It Is Important To Learn The Lessons & There Is A Saying I Have. “NEVER AGAIN”
