My Bio
I'm a lifelong artist, but I try not to let that title limit me. I draw and paint pictures, sculpt, take photographs, write stories, novels, poems, songs... There are just too many ways to express yourself. I can't be happy for long doing just one thing. I live in a town where most peoples' concept of art is limited to the Mona Lisa, Shyamalan movies, and little else. So my artistic soul is starving. I'm here to reach out and connect, and to remember how freaking cool it is to be an artist. Help.

As an actor and artist, it's a challenge to create a compelling character. So I'm still being an artist, even if it's performing and not visual. And for this play I drew 18 caricatures of the actors and director, to replace the normal headshots that go in the lobby. I've been doing carica

I will finish the drawing of Locke. I just have tons of ideas, and they each go on the backburner while I work on the next one. I love when I get like this. It doesn't happen often enough. Anyway, I just finished my first chalk sidewalk painting, not too bad, you can see it here. What else am I working on? Well, I'm glad I asked. I'm doing a design for a kid's bedroom, with an Indiana Jones motif. Indy is just timeless isn't he? I will be painting the bedroom soon. And among other things, I am going to be helping with the illustrations for a children's book. the author hopes to raise a million dollars for Big Brothers/Big Sisters, so that i
