When asked "WDYDWYD" I can't easily answer in a few clever words or slogans. Since first asked at one of my art showings I replied "Because I must". Although trite and not very well considered at the time, I've found, upon further reflection, that answer to be more or less accurate. I've been driven for as long as I can remember (and perhaps longer) to give vent to my various creative urges regardless of the activity or career in which I was engaged. Whether in athletics, theatre, movies, design, construction, art, or in my personal life, I've always followed my own distinct path, often to the bemusement of my co-workers, friends and family. I've found that as long as I pursue this course, I'm happy, healthy, loving and productive. Lately, I've found that the many resourses at my disposal are, in addition to allowing me to freely create, also allow me to assist my fellow artists to prosper in these toughest of economic times. This aspect of my life has proven to be every bit as satisfying as any other activity I've chosen. I've also been blessed with a mate that although different in upbringing, experience and outlook, has leapt into my eccentric lifestyle with both beautiful feet and has proved to be one of the best reasons I do what I do.
