For the love of ART!


It is a union that suggests the essential mystery of the world. Art for me is not an end in itself, but a means of evoking that mystery.
— René Magritte on putting seemingly unrelated objects together in juxtaposition

Welcome to my Art Lovers site. I’ve developed this site for a number of reasons. One, to show case some artwork I created, to learn to use WordPress (I fell into all the hype) and to share some projects I have been working on. Also to open up dialogue about art and creativity. Feel free to post your thoughts (keep it clean) and links to other artworks.
