"Keep working through whatever comes. Your biggest enemy is fear."

May 12, 2016


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"?        
 I don't!


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.

"I think of the word 'art' similarly to the word 'natural', often used yet the definition will go on indefinitely."
