I always knew that I wanted to be an artist. For more than 60 years it has been a gift, a curse, a passion. I’m in the studio all day, every day. Learning. Drawing, painting, building, shooting photos. Each piece a jumping-off place to the next.
My art is not about making a beautiful object, it is about telling a story, sharing a thought, or exploring an idea. My images — and the media used to create them — are changeable. Sometimes realistic, sometimes surrealistic, sometimes abstract. Sometimes traditional acrylic or oils. Sometimes digital manipulation. A reflection of my experiences, a way to share what is happening in my life.
