As a working studio artist, I’ve had the pleasure of only making art to make a living, which is a good thing, as that’s all I’ve ever wanted to do. My father’s genes on the business side, combined with my mother’s on the art side, have left me with a pragmatic view- that I’m in the business of selling myself as much as my art. That sounds a bit weird, but by that I mean that I’m selling my ability to not only create, but to deliver, on time and on budget.
I’ve always been fascinated with the role of scale in architecture, and that’s been my focus. Those architectural genes must have been lurking because all three of my children are in architecture.
So I’m one of those artists who is more concerned with a level of challenge and learning than I am in developing a collectible style, or working with the same materials year after year. I thrive on a little risk, the feeling of starting a project not knowing exactly what to do or how to get it done, whether in words or images. It’s like the fun part of traveling- you never know what’s around the next bend.
