I am an mixed media artist who paints and does assemblage.
Interests: I am a curious person and have a number of interests both common and uncommon. Some of the things I really like besides art are my big, most loved Newfies, fly fishing, antiques of all persuasions, green plants and I'd include gardening as well, other peoples art, really scary books (okay so I'm not a classic's lover), scifi and history channel, and okay I guess to sound normal I should also say I do really like my family !!! Some of my more diverse interests are old scientific books, and paper, and let's not forget chocolate.
