I like to do everything.
No, really, everything.
I've been hoping to be an artist when I grow up and am still working on it. I currently have as my medium WOOD.
I'm also a photographer, Ex-techno-geek, industrial control panel builder, amateur plumber, home maintenance tech, and reformed steamship merchant sailor. I also spent much time working on sports cars and then worked in the merchandising trade. With my wife we conducted a business selling all things related to the fiber arts.
Other media in which I work in these days is digital art, photo restoration, drawings, animations and videos. Currently working on a rig made of wood to digitize old color slides and color negatives.
See, I told you, I like to do everything.
