“I do paintings that are about my own life for the most part.  My work is usually about dogs, flowers, toys and stuff like that.  I work in acrylics and sometimes pastel. Selling my work helps me to feel connected to the world and gives me a sense of value and appreciation that is special and really awesome.”

 

influences….

 

“ I am very inspired by the outsider art movement and the energy behind it.  I felt that my work never fit in and that I was always an outsider.  I moved to New Mexico in 1969 from my native Kansas City and the whole world just opened up for me.  I lived in San Francisco  from 1980 to 1984 and swam in the bay everyday and saw lots of cool  art there and I can’t deny some influence from that time.”
