As a carpenter for over 40 years, I worked with architects who were very creative. Their work fit my sculptural way of thinking which was the basis for my original studio work. For the last few years I have done some reliefs, but for the most part my work has been in very large 2 dimensional format. Most of my bicycle and bird paintings are larger 6’ x 5’, 5’ x 5’.
As a substitute teacher for the past 12 years, I work primarily with Kindergarten thru 3rd grade children. I revel at their ability to create without outside influence. This present body of work is influenced by these young artists and their creative process.
