Welcome . . .
I believe everyone is an artist. If you think you are not an artist you are either not considering what you do that is considered art or you are too hard on yourself.
I have been doing some form of art as long as I can remember.
The various pages on this website show some of my art.
Stay tuned for more . . . I’m just getting started :)
_ Fortunately (or unfortunately?) my left brain/right brain are relatively balanced. Having lived with this brain for over 5 decades, I will tell you it has been a blessing and a curse. Because our left brain is the artistic/creative side, my art is sometimes restrained by the right side. Knowing this, I try to compensate by purposely doing things that go against what the right side of my brain is telling me.
I have been doing some form of art as long as I can remember. I’m sure having coloring books affected my approach to art . . . starting with outlined pictures to color in couldn’t help but influence my hesitation as an adult to “color outside the lines”. But the older I get the more I want to get outside the box.
My first expression of art was photography and it has remained the one consistent expression of my art. But in recent years, I have spent more time drawing the human form.
A frequent subject of my art is nature. I grew up on a farm and so my formative years were in the midst of nature . . . from animals to plants. I am always looking for photo opportunities, sometimes they turn up when I least expect it. I’ve learned to have a camera with me at all times. Most of my favorite pictures were unplanned and taken on the spur of the moment. With nature it’s hard to plan ahead, you never know when a hummingbird will sit still long enough for you to capture the moment.
Besides photographing nature, I also do au naturel photography and life drawing. I believe the human body is a wondrous thing and use my art to celebrate its wonder and beauty.
Latest news . . .
August 3, 2013 . . .I was part of the "1 Night Stand 2" erotic art show in Topeka, KS. I showed some photographs and a pastel drawing.
I've been modeling more lately than creating art. Hopefully will have some inspiration soon. I'm wanting to do some mixed media using photographs, drawings and material. Also want to try acrylics; bought some canvases recently that were on sale, now just need to buy acrylics and brushes.
