To be an artist is to believe in life.
What you will see on my website
This website is as complex as my life. My activities and involvement in a diverse, multicultural community, and in the arts, are clearly expressed in the images you will see. I am all over the map - but it is all connected. My artistic work weaves my life together into a pattern, a cloth, a substance, a map.
I am fascinated by almost every aspect of our world. I am a community and social activist, a planner, an environmentalist, a gardener, an organizer, a parent, a writer, an artist. I am both outgoing and introverted. I am an observer, a participant, and a leader.
I have embraced all the aspects of my life, and this website shows a small part of my complicated, and sometimes very difficult, journey to this place in my senior years.
I have, and will continue to, reinvent myself.
Through my art and my blog, I hope to share some of my fascination and understanding of the world we all share, and visions for the future, and hopefully a bit of wisdom and insight along the way. This is not a typical arts portfolio - but rather a journal, a history, and a place to share my continuing joy in creating and my thoughts about our world.
I hope you will find it interesting, a bit challenging, and perhaps even a bit inspiring.
