My background in art

My instruction began earnestly in the 1980's in Springfield, Illinois in a series of 'open studio' courses.  I followed these with some years of workshops, in particular at Ghost Ranch, New Mexico, a favorite destination. Later, living in Chicago permitted me to attend the School of the Art Institute.

In Norway, I am considered an 'outsider' because I do not have a 'terminal' degree in art from a Norwegian-based art school.  Since I work with my art on a part-time basis, I reach out to practice my craft on my own, sharing it with those interested.

I continue to take opportunities for instruction and growth, including workshops in Florida and self-guided tours in Europe.

"Quotable Quotes"

"Art for Art's sake.  Why not?  Art for Life's sake.  Why not?  Art for Pleasure's sake.  Why not?  What does it matter, as long as it is Art?"  -Paul Gauguin, French painter

"I want it to look like something it is. And I think a picture is more like the real world when it's made out of the real world."  -Robert Rauschenberg

"An artist is never ahead of his time but most people are far behind theirs."  -Edgard Varese
