How did you discover the medium you currently work in?
I work in an ever-evolving set of media: wax, tar, dry pigment, and oil.
How do you define "artist"?
How did you discover the Gateway Arts District?
I moved into my studio six years ago and there it was! I was privileged to have one of the very early shows at our crown jewel, the Gateway Arts Center.
If you could give your younger self a piece of advice about being an artist, what would it be?
Keep working through whatever comes. Your biggest enemy is fear.
What drives you?
I love making things. It's pretty simple.
What is your greatest challenge as an artist?
My greatest challenge is keeping fresh.
What are you working on right now?
I'm preparing a collaborative show dealing with the effects of climate change and co-curating the fourth show in the Zeitgeist series that I curate with Sondra Arkin.
