an artist of fifty-nine years. My work hangs in
private collections in Kansas,
Nebraska, Missouri, New York, South Carolina
and England. After studying under Keith
Jacobshagen, James Eisentrager,
and printmaking under Michael Nushawg at the
University of Nebraska, I earned my BFA in
From the time I first began painting
outdoors in 2000 until the present time, the
deep Inner Workings of faith and the Mystery
of being intimately known by that Entity
surfaced along side those other art forms.
The painter Jean Howard once told me that
art comes out of you in all its forms. They
cannot be separated into distinct periods.
Usually they are simultaneous expressions.
This has been true for me as well. One day I
am focused on the leaves and vines that I
see with my physical eyes. The next day I
can be bent over a burlap fabric melding
sand, beads, perlite, crushed oyster
shells, with glue and glitter. Drawn into a
trance, moving on my hands and knees,
delighting in what comes to be, an
expression of His dream over me, His
choosing and His crooning.
It is time for these sacred
forms to be seen. They have been with me
these 14 years. My desire for Him grows.
Jesus, Desire of the Nations. I remain
a visual artist, unbound. Tethered to the
hope he brings, the YES, the MORE, the
sanity, the vast intensity joy undivided.
