I was recently asked to speak at a local National Art Honor Society induction ceremony on what it means to me to be an artist.

I have just been informed that two pieces I entered in a local show have both won prizes. "Dance Ballerina Dance" won first place in the mixed media catagory and "Mother Nature" won best of show.

BIOGRAPHY:
My formal art education is rather limited to a mail correspondance course, a night course or two and now by workshops along with learning from TV shows, studying art books and doing internet searches even though my "natural" interest and involvement goes back farther then I can remember. But one thing is for sure. If I were to be asked why do I do art, I would have to say it's because I can't not do art.

Since the 80's when I started to enter Art & Craft shows, I tried to devote more time to my art, but of course along with the demands of a full time job, until I retired 10 years ago I could now devote almost all my time to my art. I have drawn and painted in every medium there is and have just now began sculpting. It's a bit of "jack of all trades, master of none", but I can now respond to any creative urge and develope it from an idea into a completed form just by following my feelings.

To just recreate what I see is not enough and isn't much different then taking a photograph of something. It should go beyond what the environment naturally provides by adding and subtracting whats necessary to achive the end result and it must say something.

I look for something that attracts me like the color of the sky or shapes of the clouds, the direction of natural or contrived light and the corresponding cast shadows or the interesting shapes in nature and man made objects and embellish these unusual features.

By accentuating these things that viewers may miss, I give the viewer something to think about, not just something to see. It's the job of the artists to bring to the viewer the best that can be found in nature along with some creativity or exaggeration, not just the normal and ordinary and above all, to follow my innate intution.

Lately, I'm attempting to avoid planing the next painting, but trying to feel an emotion that will become a painting. If I don't paint for a lenght of time or paint one painting after another, it really doesn't concern me, but it's important that there is an emotional connection to the painting. I'm not sure where these artistic endevors will take me, but one thing is for sure, though, is that I will not stop doing what I love. anytime soon.

It's just something inside me and I couldn't stop if I wanted to.
