Artist & Art Educator
The various work I do all comes from my mindset and training as an artist.
I am the Supervisor of the Graphics Center at ESU, and an adjunct faculty member in the Art Department at NCC.
I studied ceramic and metal working before drawing and painting, and still love making things.
I'm feeling a bit like the Frankenstein after my surgery on December 21, when I got a vacularized bone transplant in the ankle I had broken 34 years-to the day-earlier when I was hit by a car. Check out my Wet Paint Blog for sketches I made in the hospital and more.
I decided that this is a good time to do a series of studies from life. I still need to keep my ankle elevated as much to 100% of the time as possible, and I've been spending all of my time upstairs at home; so an intimate look at what is right at hand seems like a great idea. I actually already started some of these studies last year, but now I want to put my focus there. I want to just work with the sheer power of paint and see where that takes me.
