My adventures in art and craft have taken me down many different roads of expression.
In nearly fifty years of artistic exploration, I’ve practiced drawing in pen and ink and graphite; writing poetry, magazine articles and cookbooks; painting in watercolor, acrylic, and oil; composing music and lyrics for original songs; and creating and producing musicals for the stage. Along the way, I had no inkling that this random approach would come together as a cohesive life’s work. I studied and worked in different genres simply to satisfy my obsession with craft and artistic form. But because I’ve recently added set design to my list of achievements – having convinced theaters to use my artwork in two out of the four musicals I’ve written and staged over the past twenty years – I now see these diverse crafts coalescing into a unified tapestry of expression.
