If I had to describe myself with one word it would be artist - a visual artist and an artist with words. My artwork is included in Ohio Online Visual Arts Registry. I'm working with various galleries in the Midwest to promote my oil paintings and abstract light photography.

 About this image:

My ArtPrize Nine experience was wonderful. I delivered my painting to Spectrum Health Meijer Heart Center in Grand Rapids on September 18 then headed to Grand Haven for some R&R before returning to the lobby of the Meijer Health Center on Thursday to meet people and talk with staff. On Saturday, I visited the venues downtown with friends from Hartland, MI and was as impressed this year, as I was last year, with the amazing art and the response of the crowds – even in the heat! I am proud to have “connected” with Spectrum Health to exhibit my painting. A prize? Not likely in 2D considering the competition. Voters and jurors like bigger, flashier pieces. The ArtPrize continues thru October 8.
