Artist’s Statement, Part 4

How did I develop my techniques? One of my earliest memories of art training and instruction came from a middle school art teacher, Mr. Tylden. I vividly remember an exercise where we took a piece of construction paper and changed it by using scissors to trim the edges and/or make a random shape. Then we […]

Artist’s Statement, Part 3

How does my subject matter and style relate to my message? My style is organic and ever-changing. My message is the same.

Mundane but necessary

Just in case anyone thinks an art studio has art (painting, drawing, etc.) going on every day, I would like to set the record straight at least as far as THIS studio is concerned. Right now, the time is 3:17 pm and there has been no new creative pieces worked on today. My day has […]

Messy work spaces?

What happens when your studio or art space projects and/or supplies and materials begin to pile up and actually “get in your way?”Some people may be more tidy than that and if so, that’s fine. But, I tend to move rapidly from one table or project to another and consequently stuff piles up. My business […]
