Art making is my personal Jeckyll and Hyde. I think the phrase, "professional artist", is an oxymoron. I am a realist, but not a traditionalist; trends are there to be bucked, and I despise fads. I like to speak my mind and be as honest as I can with my art. I am a part time artist and a full time woodworker. I am a father of four and a husband of one, and I am happy.
