I am artist. I also live with blindness. I don’t consider myself disabled;
much less a dis-abled artist.
...art is art regardless of who or how it is made. Let the work speak first, tell it’s ‘story’ and if, somewhere along the line, the viewer discovers more-then it is pure bonus!
I do my best to provide a favorable experience for all persons who wish to enjoy my art. With the addition of the Painted Stories page,
I offer descriptions of artwork currently on exhibit which help persons living with blindness or a vision impairment, imagine what my work looks like. Not all works have descriptions, but I do provide an artists note in which I share what the inspiration was for the piece. Most (if not all) also include a quote or a song lyric that compliments the work...music and quotes, at times, help me to further communicate what I feel my own words are unable.
If you are like me, you want to do your part to reduce the amount of garbage that ends up in landfills, waterways and ecosystems...especially the 'single use' plastic bags.
I also love to use my art to help make the world around me more beautiful...so it seemed like the perfect idea to use the images of my works to create tote bags! These bags come in three sizes:
13" x 13"
16" x 16"
18" x 18"
All seams are double stitched for added durability. The bags are machine washable and are printed on both sides!
I'm sure you will love the variety! 21 images to pick from!
