Artist / Art Therapist
My life as an artist
I continue to be a dedicated practicing artist as I have been for more than 40 years. My work has progressed through most 2D media, photography, paint, collage, digital media and the love of drawing lies beneath it all. To borrow heavily from Joan Didion, I can't think without drawing. I have known periods of work that range from intense figurativism to abstract expression then back to figurativism. I have also known periods of fusion, when different styles and approaches have been brought into the same artwork. Even though I have experienced a level of "success" with my artwork, I have always followed where the art has led me. In essence, my artwork has always been a conduit to my subconscious and I understand my logical progression into art therapy as an intimate inevitability. MORE
