Making art. Now we're getting somewhere good.
Like everyone else in the world, life's been busy. Over the years I've been working, building businesses, raising some amazing kids, traveling the world, working some more, and generally trying to figure it all out.
What I figured out? I missed making art. A lot.
I've always created art even when I wasn't thinking about it. Much of the work in the these collections stems from captures and ideas living with me for decades. In recent years I found myself missing art making everyday. I missed the creativity, the beauty, wonder, and surprise I experience in the process. I missed the adventure of it. So, I made art making a priority in my life again.
