I am 69 this year.   I had no idea I'd live this long or get here so fast!   Both my parents & both siblings are gone, so God has helped me create 'family' in many other ways.   He's good that way, right?   Since childhood, I found art to be a great friend.   The smell & snap of opening a new box of crayons still brings back memories of a Christmas when coloring books & crayons were all my parents could afford.   I buy myself a new box every Christmas.   Next came a Brownie camera, watercolors and oils.   Over time, Nikon,...more

June 10th, 2015

This is my artist statement from my current show, "Dreams Never Die." All children dream about who they want to be when they grow up. I was no different. As is common in life, “dream killers” came along to crush my reality. One day when I was aske... 

If you feel like the last leaf on your branch, then “Branch out from where you are.” This became my focus after a real, orphaned life experience. After reading Zechariah 6:12, “Behold, a man whose name is Branch, for He will branch out from where H...
