"Art when really understood is the province of every human being.

It is simply a question of doing things, anything, well. It is not an outside, extra thing.

When the artist is alive in any person, whatever his kind of work may be, he becomes an inventive, searching, daring self-expressing creature. He becomes interesting to other people. He disturbs, upsets, enlightens, and he opens ways for a better understanding. Where those who are not artists are trying to close the book, he opens it, shows there are still more pages possible.

The world would stagnate without him, and the world would be beautiful with him; for he is interesting to himself and he is interesting to others. He does not have to be a painter or sculptor to be an artist. He can work in any medium. He simply has to find the gain in the work itself, not outside it."

- Robert Henri, excerpted from The Art Spirit, page one.

As an artist and printmaker, my work bridges many media and styles, environmental art and murals included.

Developing my photography and poetry most intensely in recent years, I have mature work ready for public view.

A varietal sampling of recent as-shot images, from across focused bodies of my ongoing work, is at the far right.
