You have found your way to the site of an artist! I will
take full advantage of that, *wink* and display my work. :-) My
gallery has four main sections: ceramics,
landscapes, conceptual work,
and animals. My 2-D work is representational, although I occasionally meld various elements in ways
that you won't find in nature. I am drawn by high contrasts and tend to push the tonal variations
within a piece in order to bring the image to its fullest impact. My choices in media varies...
you'll find paintings (oils, acrylics and watercolors), drawings, photographs, and ceramics.

But, you won't get off quite so easily. You see, I have a lot I want to talk over with you.
I am someone who has been in the trenches, personally but also professionally as a clinical
psychologist. Please let me share the insights I have developed. They can save you time,
frustration, and in some cases, overwhelming pain. Much of my writing concerns
people: interpersonal relationships, mental healthiness, and extreme interpersonal manipulation
between individual people and within groups. I call them
psychosocial writings because they
deal with how we work as individuals, within social relationships, and as a society.
Along with the articles, I also have done (and hope to get the kinks worked out to do
more) videos which I've put up on YouTube. Although
most of these are on personal growth and extreme manipulation, you'll find a few oddballs up there, too.
"Added Bonus" features of this website are some
of my...uhm...let's call 'em "Hedge Clippings" ...aka Free Clipart!... and the
growing compilation of interesting links I have amassed....The links are divided into sections
for ease, including art supplies & equipment, museums, art history, ceramic history, and much, much more.
So Please, come in! Grab a chair (the one by the window is comfy) and a cup of coffee
(or tea if you'd rather).
Oh, and don't worry about the dog. She can't shed on you in cyber space
