I love all kinds of Art  there is not much i don't like or get into. I am very fond of folk art especially 3D and relief work. I love it all

i live Parma heights Ohio in a average suburban house, but i am soon to retire and build my studio at my cabin at Cannadota lake in north western Pennsylvania where i will spend half the year cranking out the art work. and the other half (winter) in Carrabelle Florida being a amateur herpetologist and fishing with my two bengal cats.( if i could teach them to fish i would)
