Roxy & Ringo hang out with me in my studio. We like the same music so it works out pretty well... 🎶 😍🎵

I’m handy with a variety of art supplies and use whatever it takes to express my ideas (oil, acrylic, watercolor, charcoal, ink...) Control is not a factor, rather I enjoy discovering where ideas take me - happy to invent new scenarios along the way. Vague notions come from listening and observing, and they manifest as landscapes, portraits, abstract designs, cartoons, various subjects…but are always symbolic of deeper feelings.

I earned my BFA degree with an emphases in Painting & Drawing from Northern Illinois University in 1989.   StraddleTheTurtle.com is my website where you can sign up for my newsletter 💌
