Artist Statement I am a native Charlestonian and have spent most of my life in the SC lowcountry. I've drawn, painted, and created with various materials as far back as I can remember, including sculpting with wet cement with my bare hands when I was 7 and nobody was looking. In my formal education, I studied ancient things--languages, history, architecture, archeology, and, yes, art. This took me to the shores of the Mediterranean: Israel, Italy, Greece, and Tunisia. I took art lessons, from some of the finest local artists. However, I believe I have forgotten everything I ever learned from anybody anywhere, and am working on what comes naturally again. I have been making a living from my artwork since 1995, after reentering the passion in 1989. Charleston is my theme--I love the pattern of architectural shapes in various lights and the iconic images of my home city. From the study of ancient and exotic things and places, I have turned to my own roots and environment, hoping to share my vision and memories.
