The Self Portrait ~ The Bio ~ The Contact Info

I have always drawn. Cannot remember a time when I didn't have a crayon, pencil, chalk, something in my hands that would make marks. In fact, most of my youth was spent in a smudged condition.

As an adult, I'm cleaner but still, on occasion, find myself wearing paint in inappropriate places.

Until the computer came into my life I worked primarily in clay or printmaking. Now, with this new tool I spend much less time in my conventional studio and more time in this nifty, clean and immediate, digital world.


This is my self-portrait. It's one of the first things I did, but I still like it.
