artist 

 

 

I am an artist. I draw and paint every day. I am a teacher, husband, and father.   My work is autobiographical, eclectic, and genuine.  The pictures reflect my life, sense of humor, and my philosophy that process is content.

 

The process of creating is both physical and cerebral. The act of making a mark or a brush stroke is both intuitive and contrived. Paintings and drawings are not masterpieces because of the subject matter.  Quality work is not about what has been painted; it is about how it has been painted. Process is content.

I work on solo projects and collaborate with other artists.  In recent years, I have had the good fortune to show my drawings, paintings, photographs, and sculptures in a variety of spaces.  I have created murals for local businesses and as, the artist-in-residence, in an overnight camp in Wisconsin.

I have taught art for more than thirty years and pursued my own art for even longer.  Looking at the world through the eyes of an artist is a way of life.  I am inspired by artists of all ages, and I am grateful to be able to pursue new ideas through my work.
