Interests and Personality

BiographyBorn in Ohio, I spent my childhood as an Airforce brat, and didn't lose my itchy feet until I landed in Canada in my 20s. I then spent 15 years in California, before an auto accident changed my life and my art. While I still own a kiln, my wheel only sees action when I'm playing with a new texture medium, or need to center myself. I consider myself an 'experimental' artist, doing something similar for 2 or 3 canvases, then taking off in an entirely new direction trying to release something I dreamt about. The recurring geometric black-and-whites are what I do to reclaim some iota of control when life becomes too chaotic. Most of the time, however, I allow the brush and paint to take on their own life, tell their own story...that's when I am happiest.
InterestsEverything interests me, I can find beauty in almost anything. I have decorated my living room in rusted items, animal skulls, and other naturally aged trinkets, which is not something your average 'Walmart' decorator would even consider, but I find it far more interesting than anything I can buy.
MusicCake, The Dandy Warhols, The Refreshments, Aztec two-step, Jethro Tull, pretty much anything that hasn't been played to death.
FilmsReally 'good' B movies - Kung Fu Hustle, Bubba Hotep, Army of Darkness, Chumscrubber, anything weird and twisted.
TelevisionTV will rot your brain - it's only background noise...
BooksNew York Times Crossword Puzzle book- 1001 pushups for my mind.
HeroesAnyone who would rather fight the current rather than go with the flow...there's too much 'white bread' in the world- give me homemade pumpernickle!

What a wonderfully happy portrait you have. That is a feeling we should all experience regularly. I love your "Retro" black & whites, and the works in you "Nashville" gallery.

DaliaRubin

After reading your biography, I can relate to your work since I too dream most of my paintings. Love your touch.

pogo

two things - 1) i'm intrigued by your story 2) it has resulted in some very interesting work 3) while I'm at it - i agree, weird is good

Hi there, just a quick favour to ask, I've got some designs on www.nakedandangry.com and they can be voted on, if you get a minute I would really appreciate your votes! You have to register with the site first, it only takes a minute and then you go into design and vote away! Its a cool site anyway and worth a visit, if you put any work up let me know and I'll vote for you!! Best wishes Clare Ferguson-Walker

Dear Friend, Do to an inexplicable error in the software I am unable to log in to my profile as established. Therefore I am starting a new one. I hope we will be able to continue to communicate. I value the experience of participating in MyArtProfile and your friendship. Best regards and good wishes, Robbie.
