When I was 30 years old I moved to the Tampa Bay area in Florida and shortly afterwards opened a Studio/Gallery with an artist friend in Tampa. Then I joined the Tampa Gallery Association and participated in the Association's "Gallery HOP" where we used city busses to run from the Museum of Fine Arts downtown to each of the member Galleries. It was a HUGE success!
I have xhibited my work in Florence, Italy at the Bienale de Firenze and in Sydney, Australia.
I try to avoid subjects about religion, I think spirituality is a personal journey and all our beliefs should be respected.
I think we all treat one another poorly without love. Each of us has a gift and our contributions should be acknowledged.
I do not avoid politics or economics because I consider these current constructs to be tools to manipulate and control others. They are a distraction from the aspects of life I consider important and I am simply not a fan.
I am certain there must be a better path which is respectful of others.
