If art isn't your full time profession, than what is? What other activities and/or hobbies do you enjoy?

Outdoors, yoga, fitness, live music...I'm a drummer with fairly eclectic tastes.

We are curious as to each persons definition of "What is art". In a few words, give me your definition of what art is to you. Our definition of art is "a spirit of creativity that flows from mind to hand".

Good concept + good design + good craftsmanship and execution

How long have you been working as an artist? Would you be interested in helping plan events for this group?

Interested in art-making since grade school. Will pass on info concerning events of possible interest. May be willing to arrange ocassional official; "Meetups" if so empowered.

What do you hope to learn and share as a group member? What are your future goals? What is your current age?

I'm 66 and still "emerging". Looking for appropriate venues and prospects for sale of my work, which is likely to appeal to a relatively small niche market. I don't do "pretty".

What kind of art do you do or make? Do you need help with beginnng or finishing a project?

Most work begins with found materials and/or objects. Varies from representational through semi-abstract to purely abstract. Samples at More recent work on Myface. Don't need or want help, except as needed (rarely).


I'm a 3D mixed-media artist interested in meeting other visual artists, promoters and collectors. Former Board Member for Phila/TriState (www.artistsequity.o­rg). Current member of Dumpster Divers of Philadelphia.
