Television & reading books growing up started me down the path
of imagination and creativity.

What is one of the most important things that art has brought to your life:

As a lover of movies and theater I would have to say Cinematic Arts.

fellow artist, ethusiast, and collectors.

Has this year brought about any changes in your work, and if so what are they: 
Yes slight changes have emerged, I no longer overwork the textures until they are so smooth
I leave things more organic, & open-ended allowing the viewer to draw their own conclusions.

than one medium into my paintings when possible.

Who is your favorite artist alive or dead: 
Andrew Wyeth

Salvador Dali's  Persistence of Memory I was floored by it, seeing that painting made
me want to do art alot bolder.

Do you have any animals, and what do they think of your work: 
Yes, a small dog,...I'm not sure what he would think I think I heard dogs are colorblind if
that is true, my paintings would probably look pretty flat unimpressive to him.

I'm currently working on alot of new paintings for a year end solo show in December no specific date yet.
