Art I make
Digital paintings. Drawings and paintings in watercolor and acrylics. Kinetic constructions. Serigraphs and other prints. Photographs.
Contrast through divergent concepts and imagery. Humor. Science connections. Story
Why I make art
For community, to share. To complain, explain, connect; experiment like a scientist. For laughter, joy. To explore ideas, solve problems. To let go. To escape housework. For philosophical indulgences
Army brat. Biology and General Science. Computer literacy. Science education. Teaching and learning (Jr. High, College). Illustration, other fine art. Messing around with stuff.
Both parents. Curiosity. Deadlines. Logic, factual knowledge. Mistakes. My first pocket knife. The Science Fair. Travel, international living (Peace Corps, Nigeria). Wading in tidepools. Staring at things. Other artists!
Procrastination. Eating more vegetables. Keeping the pencil sharp. Trying to stand on one foot
