dear art afficianados
     What a wonderful experience to attend an open air art exhibition in a lovely park! I have attended many and exhibited in many, and always enjoyed the colorful interplay of artists, their creations and their audience. There is always a feeling of excitement and anticipation, as people discover pieces they love, (or hate). You see hungry artists representing their hard work and talent, and the collectors that make or break them. The atmosphere is thick with emotion, "Will she buy that for her den?", "That will not work in my dining room, I need something with more blue." And so on and so forth. The art and the people are great, and I sincerely recommend you attending whatever outdoor art festivals/shows are in your bailiwick. I have some solo shows coming up in the near future, and I'd love to meet you at one of them if at all possible. These solo shows are listed below.

artist statement
I create art because I must.
It is a necessary extension of my life.
It identifies and substantiates my existence.
It is my profile and my legacy.
I want to intrigue and entertain.
I want to initiate wonder and questions.
I want to communicate my thoughts, dreams and desires.
Most of all, I want to be
