Artist Statement

My heroes as a boy were Robert Fulton, Eli Whitney, Admiral Byrd, Johannes Kepler, Madame Curie, and Bugs Bunny. I watched The Crawling Eye on Million Dollar Movie and Shari Lewis on channel Thirteen. I played board games and built plastic models incessently. Kool-Aide, potatoe chips, and Mcdonalds were balanced by TinkerToys, telescopes, and television. In television, imagination is presented in a box, and on a screen, images are in a rectangle, like most paintings.

Fun and boredom were two feelings I knew. I wanted to become an oceanographer, I became an artist instead. I still mess around with stuff.
