How long have you been an active artist?
Since I was 25, so that’s about 30 years.
Best advice to new artists going forward?
Shamelessly ask for advice. Ask questions from other artists whether the answers might seem obvious or not and as much as possible. Most will be generous with what they’ve learned and their resources.
A cool fact about you and your art, what you create.
I am a pure distillation of my mother and father in ways they would not recognize. My mother being a creative recycler, and would have been a great engineer in another lifetime and my father was a great craftsman, (although he never mentored me). Between the two of them, and how they spent their lives and things I inherited are purely a result of my artwork.
