Painting is just another way of keeping a diary.  --Pablo Picasso

My blog will be primarily my reflections on my work throughout my life--what moves me to want to create something which is difficult to express in any other way but through visual means.

Sometimes I will discuss specific pieces on which  I am currently working and how they relate to works in the past.  Other times my comments will be more general about what imagery, whether "real" or imagined, interests me.


My beginnings,,,,,

I always loved coloring and drawing from the time I was a child, so it is no wonder I continued that love into art school and beyond.  Childhood drawings of trees, animals, houses, and people developed into more "realistic" versions of the same imagery as I honed my skills.
