as an artist
i have been working for the past thrity years as an artist. I earned a bfa in drawing and a mfa in printmaking. my aesthetic sense tends to lean towards the immediacy of mark making no matter the media i chose to express my ideas.
as a full time educator the challenge has been and continues to be to stay engage in my on creative experiences. it's like having two full time jobs, I work in the classroom and then i come how to work in the studio.
i find that each medium lends itself to particular approaches for visual expression, but i am always interested in providing moments of visual interest and metaphors that serve as catalysts for thought.
i strive to provide others with a road map of my inner journeyings.
