Pages of my journal.....Fish swim across a background of paint and torn vintage papers.
The quote is one of my favorites:
"Many people go fishing all of their lives without knowing that it's not the fish they are really after."
There are two things in my life that have been constant, no matter what: art and the need for unstructured time to play. I am a compulsive maker-of-things who believes that every day must have some time set aside to feed the creative spirit. This would include making art, looking at art, reading about art, experimenting/playing with materials, learning new skills, and general studio art-play. To support my habit and spread the joy, I was an art educator for 38 years. I'm now retired from public education, but still enjoy teaching occasional workshops locally. I will try to share some of my adventures in both art and play here in this space.
