I am an American Artist
I have to admit I always feel weird when someone asks me what I do for a living and I say I am an artist. Part of me just never feels like I really own that label yet. Happily, I am one step closer as American Artist Magazine has named me one of their 10 Cover Contest Winners for 2011. The article will be in their June issue and they did a really nice write up on me from my somewhat rambling phone interview with the editor.
What I found the most cool thing is that all of my co-winners were oil painters and here was little old me, sliding in there with my humble colored pencils. Nice!
I am creating new work for my first show of the season next month in Los Altos so I hope to post some of them here soon. Thanks, as always, for your interest and support!
