 Welcome to my "studio"! I have tried to include all the different creative projects that have held my attention for so long and some of the newest ones in various stages.

Life as an artist...

As I have matured over the years as an artist and creative person I have also developed an interest in the psyche as it colligates to this creative process. My introduction as a young college student to the work of C.G. Jung as I perused the book Man and His Symbols would begin a life-long interest in the psyche and it’s connection with what I conjectured in my finals paper for the Union Institute and University as the Artist Archetype.  I look back now on a blessing that I was unable to finish college as a youth. Circumstance made me delay this until I was in my sixties after so many years of independent study. I had time to formulate my thoughts. Even now I do not have a grasp on all of this, and I do not expect to, but I understand I must continue to ask the right questions of the oracle! I have to add that I was fortunate to run across mentors and teachers who taught me so much, including my current partner, to all of whom I am deeply grateful for my confidence and knowledge of materials and techniques in making art.
