About This Site


Purpose


"Art is food. You can't eat it, but it feeds you. Art has to be cheap & available to everyone. It needs to be everywhere because it is the inside of the world."

Well-wishers tried telling me for years, in one way or another, to make more time and space in my life to make art — primarily because they could see, sometimes more clearly than I could, how much art-making feeds me. And finally, I did. This site is for them, so they can keep up with what I'm doing, and for anyone else who's curious about my work.

One More Thing

About the Bread & Puppet quote above: A driving philosophy behind my creative process is that art doesn't have to cost a lot to make. It can, and that's fine. But art — art that's beautiful, meaningful, expressive, thought provoking — can be made with simple, inexpensive materials. The wire I sculpt with costs about $4 per spool at a nearby hardware store. Many of the found objects I use, if I haven't picked them up off the street, come from Goodwill or garage sales or are given to me by friends. Make art with whatever you have.
