If – can we have a little background information on you – Where
Currently I reside in Brookfield, WI
What first drew you to Art?
Art is something I have always enjoyed; I would have to say in High School, they offered a wide variety of classes such as painting, sculpture, etc. Going to various museum’s in different states.
How long ago was that?
Over 20 years ago
How would you describe your medium?
All my Fine Art work is printed on a metallic paper which gives my pieces the impact that I am looking for. They are mounted and matted with an 8 ply white mat. I don’t feel I would get the same results as if I had my work printed on a mat paper.
What does it feel like to create?
It gives me a sense of freedom, that each one of my images is different from the next. Also, that my work is different from everybody else.
What motivates you?
Experiencing something new every day.
What inspires you?
Travel, going places that I have never been before and seeing something for the first time.
Are you working on any new Art Projects (if more than one);
Yes, I have been working on doing some additional portrait work, along with doing my Fine Art Photography
Tell us about your main project?
Starting new project at the end of September, going to go to bond falls where I have never been before and places in Door County; then in October spending time on the west coast.
Why did you choose this forum to express your art?
Photography is something I have always enjoyed, I call it my therapy.
What advice would you a young Artisan in promoting their Art?
Get your name out there; promote your work, advertising, marketing, and website. Get into art shows, galleries etc…. work on your craft everyday….
Do you think that being an Artisan is something that is in your blood? Or is it something that can be learned?
Yes but I also think that it is an undiscovered talent that you might have. I also think that it is something that can be learned…
What is the best advice you have ever been given in your field of Art? A picture is something that can be put on a calendar or a place mat. A photograph is something that can be displayed on a wall.
How many hours do you work daily on your Art and what are your daily
tasks for your work?
Depends on what I am working on, anywhere from 6-8 hours a day; and reading the latest information on the new trends in photography. Viewing other photographers work and talking with other photographers.
