I am a Detroiter born and raised who lived next to the railroad tracks. Now I live walking distance to a lake. I still love the same things I always loved: animals, looking at the moon and the stars, birds, and people, drawing and painting.
I love sounds of color but line is the thing that gives artwork definition and movement. I try to combine color, shape and line into artwork that can express a feeling or mood.
