I am a retired general dentist who has always been interested in making things. I am also a woodworker, seamstress, baker, and artist. The fine details of realistic art have always appealed to me. It has also encumbered me such that I explore a looser style and pull more from my imagination. Though I enjoy working in other mediums, graphite and charcoal remain my favorite. I am happiest when immersed in the design or creation process… or when eating chocolate and watching old cartoons.
