I've been a maker as long as I can remember. My very first masterpiece was a multi-day work in crayon on the wall behind my bedroom door - age 3. Thirty-some years later I haven't stopped.
Oils, gouache, and ink are my favorites, but I'll play with most materials if left unsupervised. I use as much found, reused, recycled, natural, non-toxic, less-toxic, etc. materials as possible these days. I really like discarded materials and leftover supplies, and I can tell you a story about each painting.
