My art is inspired by…

Mostly self taught. I never intended to be an artist. It just became a necessity. I took one beginning painting class for therapy after I started getting chronic headaches. Doctors and self-medicating was not helping. What did I have to lose? I had not even taken art in high school.Creating art has given me positive goals for the future.

My Art is trying to capture the subliminal ironies and absurdities of events, words, and things, real or imagined. This is for my need of comprehension, and my need to create beauty with an alternate reality. To share this is also desired

“Mistaken Identity III”, is about a time when I was camping in some mountains and I was listening for a train to pass to go to sleep. The train just kept going. Finally I realized I was miles from train tracks. It was a mountain stream that I was listening to.
