"The Factory"
48"H X 24"W - Mixed Media
Honorable Award/Diploma of Excellence - FEM9 Awards of Distinction - Juried By Andrea Pagnes/Art Critic, Peter Russu/Editor World of Art Magazine.

"The Factory" was once a bustling, productive place in the little town of Wikipedia, PA. Everyone, or almost everyone, was employed at The Factory in one capacity or another. So, it's fair to say that the entire town was dependent on Mr. Schultz and the manufacture and production of his lollipops known and advertised as "Schultzie Pops". Schultzie Pops came in all flavors, all colors and all sizes. They were distributed throughout the state and had just received an order from the White House for their Easter Egg Hunt. Mr. Schultz was waxing proud over this order and took an ad out in the Town Crier announcing that the Obama's were nuts over his suckers. If you haven't tried these delightful treats, go to www.schultziepops.com and order some. You'll soon be hooked on them.

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
