I work from photographs abstracting what I see as the essence of the picture. I have been drawing and painting since I was in junior high school. I always thought I was serious about it. With the advent of the internet, I now have places to post and publish my work. I work with oil crayons and graphite as well as crayola crayons and graphite. I tried water color but don't feel that comfortable with them.
I have written 5 books of poetry and published numerous poems in magazines and e-zines. Photographs and paintings have also appeared in print and in internet publications.
