Wishing this one was hanging on my wall.

I really believe in supporting the arts, I feel that appreciating art is what connects us as humans, the ability to express feelings through the use of visuals, dance or spoken words.  It’s a flow between the artist and those who take the time to look.  That’s the connection, that’s why I love creating.  And the medium I’ve chosen of late is photography, but I started long ago as a painter.  Sometimes I feel that my photography reflects a more painterly appearance through the use of color and movement.

I approach various subject matter with the same intimacy.

Soon I will be changing my name,  dropping the one I borrowed 40 years ago and replacing with my maiden and new surname.  A rose by any other name would smell as sweet as my art will still reflect me no matter what name I choose.
