Welcome to my explorations into the world of art. I am a self-taught artist, and I enjoy the process of discovery almost as much as making art. Being self-taught allows me to ignore the rules and boundaries of traditional art. After working in an office for 40 years it’s time to let loose. I realized that I have grown older but I've never grow up. I’m not being bound by anything but my imagination.
I paint, draw, sculpt in wood and stone, make metal sculptures, furniture as well as doodads and whatsits. I let the art muse lead me wherever it wants to go. I find that I jump around from painting to sculpture to furniture, all depending on the whim of the day.
My art, sculptures and furniture start with a spark of an idea. That idea will roll around in my head and nag at me till I tackle it. It can start with something as simple as a piece of scrap metal, a piece of drift wood or even an image that just pops into my head. I can visualize the finished item before I even begin creating the piece. The challenge is having the skills to realize the vision, and I enjoy the discovery process as much as making art.
You will find interesting details about what I am doing on my blog. I will share my thoughts and activities as my I continue my journey artist.
