Then one day I was looking at the corn fields behind the shop. I found a piece of plywood and some spray paint. I have not stopped painting or writing. My first book deals with true short stories of the ’50s and ‘60s.
My goal is to continue to create beautiful works of art fueled by passion, whimsy and imagination. I recently won Martha Stewarts American Made Audience Choice Artist and I am an Emerging Artist On Art Jury.
When I worked with stoneware I began to recognize the relationship between clay and its latter brother, stone. And that millions of years turned once living creatures into fossils, and that the DNA of a mosquito could be embedded into amber and carrying forth the presence of a extinct species. This very miracle giving the stone a mission in the transcendence of time and making it an interesting and very valid issue in the essence to our being.
