I’m handy with an array of art supplies using whatever it takes to express my ideas; paint, graphite, ink, etc... on various surfaces. I enjoy discovering where ideas may take me - happy to invent new scenarios along the way. Vague notions come from observations, manifesting as landscapes, portraits, abstract designs, cartoons; sometimes quirky but always symbolic.
I earned my BFA degree with an emphases in Painting & Drawing from Northern Illinois University in 1989. StraddleTheTurtle.com is the hub of my outreach.
