About

I am an artist living in sunny (and hot and incredibly humid) Florida. My work is primarily acrylic and collage elements, like tissue paper, but I hate defining such a narrow category because it’s what your ‘supposed to do’. I like the vague and generalized termĀ mixed media, not as a definition of my work but more as a description of me and the tools and materials I feel like using. I’m too damned old for all the rules and conformities.

My real job is as an educator. I feel that won’t last much longer. If you pay attention to some news or at least read a little bit you have probably noticed that teaching and teachers are an endangered species. I won’t play their games much longer because their rules are bad for kids. Art sets me free and allows me to think. It’s where I’m at (nope, not an English teacher).
