First and foremost my paintings are about people, nature and relationships. Therefore, I believe it is very important that people have access to original art- to a distinct, unique story. I do everything possible to keep my prices down. Recycling and reusing help. I work in different mediums which have wide ranges of costs. Some work takes hours and hours, some are quicker, spontaneous less worked. I price by material cost plus time. A benefit of not relying on reproductions to boost inventory is I must paint constantly. This hones skills and vision. Another goal is to root my art and business in my community as well as provide the space, materials and knowledge for those wishing to explore the visual arts to do so.
