Not sure quite where it all comes from but I have been making art since I was a kid. My level of creative energy has waxed and waned through the years. For the last 9 years I have been very fortunate to have a location that keeps me working at my art. Never know what it all means...whether it serves mankind well or even me...well. It is a drive that keeps me going. I love art, I love looking at other's work and I can not stop making my own. My biggest desire is that it touches those who see it in a positive way and that they want to see more.
As a child I would often have dreams that as an adult I would now call abstract. Just color, texture and sounds, that would sometimes frighten me or sometimes even make me laugh. I thought everyone had these so I would be puzzled when I tried to explain them to others and they looked at me as if I was crazy.
I could sit for hours staring into the clouds or blades of grass seeing worlds that I wanted to enter.
I was very fortunate to have gone to public schools where the arts were considered important. There were several art teachers who encouraged me a good deal and gave me the basic tools. Beyond high school, I consider myself a self taught artist.
Born 1950 in Schenectady NY.
