As an Artist I embrace the many vantage points and give the 360 degree holographic nature of expression free rein. Political and social satire is a medium filled with endless material and surprises, and my “opinion” or view may be inconsistent day by day. Perhaps many of us feel this way these days, as we navigate rough patches created by tough facts and many fallacies we are constantly attempting to decipher. By allowing room for spontaneous and uncensored painting, I’ve often been rewarded with unexpected images and ideas as connectors to deeper psychological associations and realizations. Working in this method, I allow much reading, dreaming, thinking, viewing, listening, and participating in hundreds of meetings for common sense and stakeholder status with my fellow citizens, to inform my work. I hope to bring some light to the relatedness of our problems today as well as some levity and solutions.

DON’T SHOP WITH GMO - Food is Medicine!
In early America sugar and fats were very difficult to acquire, and remedies were made from herbs, vinegar and baking soda, and food. Similar natural healing existed in every culture, and is being better maintained in some countries than others. The main point of this art show is to reduce the grandiosity and fear surrounding the topic and shed some light upon it. Many of us are confused, or feel nothing can be done to eradicate the chemicals and genetically engineered products in ourmidst. Yet understanding how these dangerous practices were allowed into our food system is the beginning of knowing how to get rid of them. "
