I call myself “Artist” for want of a better term. There is nothing self-evident in my creative work except the compulsion to do it. Through no intention of my own, I have been pointed out as something apart, a five legged calf, a monster. I have never fought for that position, nor do I do so now to keep it. Yet I may as well at times have felt the winds of megalomania sweep across my brow. But I believe myself to be immune. I need only for one second remind myself of the utter unimportance of art in the human world in order to cool myself down again. But that does not mean the compulsion does not remain.

Formerly educated and employed as a graphic artist I’ve had the opportunity to work with many wonderful clients including Public Television, Human Rights Campaign, but I became frustrated creating throw-away-art in the form of public service announcements and designing for the client, who has all the say. Eschewing art schools with their labyrinthine structures and syllabi based on obtaining academic units and defying the class distinctions pervading the art world-I made my transition from graphic designer to Artist with aplomb. Now I’m creating art for art’s sake, I bring my voice, my view.
