Drawings

Over the past 4 1/2 decades my drawings are sometimes stand alone pieces, other times they are preliminary work for paintings. I favor charcoal, graphite and prismacolor. Hope you enjoy!

The World Is Watching

Though I’ve lived my life mostly apolitical, I’ve found myself occasionally stepping away from the Dreamscapes, compelled to respond in my art to what I’m witnessing in this time and place.  A mixed media drawing depicts the intersect of the Pandemic, the BLM movement, and the uprising of White Supremacy and Fascism both here in America and around the globe. I’ve imagined the Four Horsemen of the Apocalypse placed in a 2020 context.  Each of the horses and their riders depict an aspect of social unrest or governmental failure that I’m witnessing. It comes as a surprise to find myself making images of a political nature; however I feel compelled to bear witness.

I'm an artist--primarily a painter, sculptor and a writer. I'm currently working on a series of short stories that together fall under the theme of memoir. Being a creative helped me survive heartbreak, tragedy and depression throughout my life. Follow my journey and see the art I created in the past, what I'm making now and on into the future.
