About me

Industry Arts
Location Midwest, United States
Introduction I've realized through the years I must keep several creative irons in the fire -- heating up together at any given time-- to keep life interesting, and to channel the ideas that crowd my right-brained mind. Painting and sculpting (using salvaged, re-purposed or 'upcycled' materials whenever possible) are my favorite outlets. My interests are many, my influences varied. Plus eclectic. Did I mention numerous?

With it all happily behind me, I look forward daily... to looking ahead.... _____________________________ Note, my posting in here can be sporadic at best -- thanks for bearing with me.....!
