Welcome to my world, my creations.  Creating art is a challenge, one that I have fought since the day I held my first pencil, or crayon. I make a lot of images.  Sometimes I cannot keep up with what I think of inventing.  Each drawing/painting/devised object has a story.  Within this web site, you will be able to sample a small slice of my thoughts.  Unfortunately, internet viewing of my art is quite incomplete. I have always maintained that there is no such thing as a 2 D drawing.  All of my work is 3d, you can touch it, you can feel it.  Here, via fiber optics and electricity, and as awesome as the internet is, the true intensity of my art cannot be fathomed. It just isn't the same as standing in front of the actual piece and using your physical senses.  With that said, I urge you to try to see my art when it is on a wall, in a show or in my studio.

I love making art. I love listening to music. I love nature. I love looking at things. I love learning new things. I love reading. I love my children. I love people. I love happiness. I love being outside. I love swimming. I love running. I love color. I love energy. I love creativity. I love fooling around. I love life.

It is excellent to be alive!
