I am interested in cultural and art history and how I fit into the art world making images of male figures and natural scenes that please me. I enjoy drawing from live models and sketching plants and flowers and sometimes animals. I have a passion for museums of art and culture and spend lots of time looking at what has been made before us. Washington, DC is full of fine museums that are free to everyone and I make full use of this opportunity. I enjoy writing and reading email from over seas pen pals and trading stories and digital photos of plants, places and events.
