Now - a little about me, and some other related things that I offer.
My life for as long as I can remember has been filled with the love of art and artistic expression. I've had some formal art training, but am largely self-taught as an artist. My philosophy is that you learn to draw by drawing! Although many of my recent paintings and drawings are characteristically abstract, perhaps surreal, and often symbolic, I also enjoy creating works that are more realistic and down to earth, with subjects inspired by the Great Lakes area where I live.
I'm always open to exploring new mediums and styles, as well as experimenting with more non-conventional things, such as creating paintings with house paint, or drawing on watercolor paper - just to see what kinds of effects might result. Moody weather and cloudy days often inspire me more than 'smiley face days'. I adore gnarled and twisted trees, unusual rock formations, sand blowing across the dunes, or faces that are weather-worn and full of the wisdom gained through the school of hard knocks for portraits.
My other interests include: Blogging and creative writing, singing-songwriting, and offering what I call 'Creative Path Exploration' get-togethers, or traditional 'how to' art classes and workshops. It is especially fun to offer these art shows, classes, music events, or a combination thereof to small groups in private homes, or within holistic-integrative centers friendly to art and music as modalities for wholeness and healing. If you are interested in this, I would love to hear from you! So please click the contact button in the above menu, so we can get something arranged and scheduled!
Commissions are of course always welcome in subjects of your choice. Thanks for stopping by, and I hope you will enjoy your tour of my visual offerings and blogs! More on the way... so please stop back often!
