I am an abstract artist, student of those ancient ancestors, the Irish Celtics. I must have music to paint. I started dancing at age one to my Irish father's harmonica. He danced with me. I must have music to paint as I paint through the night, dancing to high volume music that feeds my soul. Time does not exist when I am painting. I have been a member of the Skagit Valley artist community for fifty years. For seventeen years, I co-hosted the Skagit City Fine Art Exhibit which included up to eighteen of the Valley's finest; Guy Anderson, Clayton James, and so many other talented artists.
