-I-am-Happy-Talkativ e-Unique-Creative-In telligent- I have lived in a wide variety of places and in each a very different life. My history drove me to art. In fact it was a specific moment, in a specific place when I had the epiphany that my next stop would be Manhattan at an art school. I have shown my work in nationally judged craft shows, galleries and museums, but never satisfied for long. I must keep improving. I love the challenge. When I began my work was all photographic, but I found the medium had some constraints and have since concentrated my efforts in paint, mixed media and steel. Though my work is not abstract it is enigmatic. I prefer the viewer not be brow beaten with "my" meaning. I feel that the most interesting imagery evokes emotion, ideas and stories, allowing the viewer to meet the work half way so to speak. I create because I must, however i am not sure if it is due to the fact that I have something I wish to say or if I have a need to relive specific moments. Possibly it is both. I have lived life to its fullest and find enjoyment in almost everything: playing games of strategy or games like pictionary. I love cooking on an open fire, discussing the politics of the day or the newest scientific discovery, or simply musing while listening to the tree frogs. I never cease to be amazed at the complexity of the universe. I can sit for hours hypothesizing about time and space travel or upon the effects on cultures if they were to suddenly find themselves living in a different country. I love a discussion that goes on for hours and hours, smoothly weaving from topic to topic. I do not enjoy discussing sports, however a competitive playoff game once in a while is. I try to enjoy life to its fullest. I have lost people close to me, as have we all, and I feel exceedingly lucky to be alive. I have fallen down cliffs free climbing(distant past),lost control going down a very steep glacier and as a passenger I was thrown out of a pickup truck at high speed on a highway. I am alive, but how many lives do we have?!?...I was in the I.D.F. and spent a year in Lebanon, half that time during the war and half quietly beforehand. I have had knives pulled on me: I have been shot at, rocketed and even had many wire guided missiles fly past my sensitive head. I have ten fingers. I have ten toes and can see them all. I wake each day happy. I do not believe in an all knowing supreme being but I am thankful and I can respect someone who does.. Do we live in a multiverse? I think so. Should I thank the cosmos? I have no clue. I do know that I am constantly amazed by everything that is not man made. I do know that I will continue to create and evolve and I do know that I choose to share that journey with a special someone. I am looking for a best friend, a confidant, someone I would give my life for, a muse a lover.
