Jim Mamay, California Member Since February 2007 Artist Statement Howdy, About 40+ years ago I popped out of the womb fully formed and possessed all manor of knowledge, insight and abilities. Every action I took was well thought out, balanced and with singular focus toward recognizing my destiny. -OR- I got thrown out of college at 20, never stepped into a museum until I was 30 and I still don't know what I want to be.
