About Artist

Basic Information

  • Artist Statement

    To practice any art, no matter how well or badly, is a way to make your soul grow. So do it. –Kurt Vonnegut.
    As years have passed, I have come to realize that my "soul growing" endeavors encompass whatever I am creating at any given moment. When I am writing, my attention, heart and soul go into what I am writing, but it also goes into my visual art, my cooking, working, playing and my relationships.  The subtitle to my blog is "Life Is Creative." I have taken that statement and applied it to nearly every aspect of my life.
