Welcome to my page.
I am a self-taught artist. My work began in my early 30's in colored pencil--specifically as a very heartfelt art therapy healing process. Then many suggested I share. . . that others might relate to my work.
For 8 x 10's, I tried to pack every inch of paper with substance and the highest artistic quality possible for my skill-set at the time. Each piece takes about 50 hours to color in. It is rewarding, but a slow and time consuming process. . . and has little compassion for mistakes. Corrections are hard to do.
This is only a portion of my work suitable for this page. The rest I save for an appropriate time or audience to share it with . . .it being a little "strong" out of context.
The Photography came some years later, in my 40's. It is done with a simple digital "Budget Camera"-- due to budget contraints. It is fun to see what I can put together with a simple camera like that. But work is also done on computer to make things come out their best.
With the photography, I try to convey something unique in my work or have a quirk/twist on a favorite subject matter and "run with it."
I hope you enjoy my work. If you are interested in giving feedback on the work or purchasing a printed copy, I can be reached at my email: firstname.lastname@example.org, checked on a weekly basis.
