I find Hyde Park to be unassuming and curious, filled with people going about their lives, curious about the next bend in the road.

When I first moved here thirteen or so years ago I wasn't aware of all the art that was going on just under the surface. Then I heard about Artist-At-Large and the MAC and the artists studios at Spraque Street and then the Open Studios started happening and I was like. "Damn!, This place is pretty cool!" When my partner and I heard about the Artist Live/Work spaces at 1391 Hyde Park Avenue we were interested and moved in and it has been an adventure ever since.

I am a painter, printmaker and a poet. I am quiet about my work. I do it because I must. I do it because the joy I feel when I am working is like no other joy. And I do it because I am curious about what is beyond the next bend in the road.
