Why is art important to you?
Art is important to me on so many levels, we as human creatures need creativity around us to stimulate our brains and it adds beauty and adds a smile to someone's face, or stirs up any kind of emotion. That's what art is about, engaging curious minds to think and share ideas.
What artists do you admire right now?
There are soo many artists that I admire , too hard to pinpoint, but, I have admired Joesph Beuys work, and Kiki Smith. I recently saw an exhibit at the National Gallery of Ottawa with there work highlighted.
Who do you consider a genius?
David Byrne from Talking Heads, he has done sooo much, from music, to photography, to doing an installation in New York City, he's always reinventing himself!
I've been exploring with all kinds of mediums. lately, it's been linocuts/collage using Japanese paper with resin to complete the works.
