Product Information

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.”


“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.”
