“Painting puts me in tune with synchronicity and intuitive knowledge. My figures were standing in water before I learned that water is a symbol of initiation. I’m interested in the before times, the stories that became incorporated into religions. Moments of initiation, when our perceptions change, are what I seek to portray.

  2. The good or bad old days of retouching B&W prints and negatives. You have had an impressive clientele and an equally impressive list of awards. The Subway Gallery looks like a cool place. I have not been to Bisbee in years.
