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.

After having more than a few set backs this year finally back on track. Mr Pig is getting a motorized tail along with fine new threads stay tuned. Decided that my paintings were starting to be not as fun as before so to loosen up looked back at old drawings re-centerd and now I'm off. Continue reading

is more really better, interesting question. I would be inclined to say that it all depends on what the "more" is. If it was money I would have to say yes more is better but if it was, say, shit, then more definitely wouldn't be better. Continue reading
