What is my art about? It’s about raucous joy, quiet beauty and the humor which makes us HUMan. My work in both two and three dimensions is generally representational and often whimsical. I love nothing better than trying to discover new mediums and using “old “ artistic mediums in new ways. Although I have always painted ( cannot remember a time I didn’t), I’m 15 years new to sculpture as an expressive form.
