1. What do you do when you’re not making art? (Day job etc...).

When I'm not making art I'm usually still working, I've always worked 2 jobs. I paid my way through college shoeing horses, that was my side-job for 35 years. These days my side-job is painting houses, interiors now and then, exteriors most of the summer, my regular job is at the Home Depot.

2. Why do you make art?

Why I make art? Because art makes me! I'm creative, I love beauty, I feel like my art is one of the deepest expressions of who I am.

3. What inspires you?

What inspires me is color, composition and design. Draft horses that weigh a ton working together. I farmed with Belgian draft horses for 16 years, I had a 3 horse hitch sometimes, the most I ever drove was 5, that's a lot of "snort"!

4. What/who are your influences?

My biggest influence artistically has been John Singer Sargent.


5. If you could meet anyone dead or alive who would it be?

If I could meet anyone personally dead or alive I would, and will one day, meet Jesus. Besides that I would like to meet some of the Red Wings, Lions, and GR Griffins players, along with some of my favorite theologians like Fr. Corapi and horsemen like Pat Parelli.
