About me: I am a member of what is referred to as the "art brut" movement, a growing category of art proffessionals who've never studied art in the traditional sense. We've always been involved in the artistic process albeit not in the conventional apparatus of art school or university training that is common to the subculture.
That said, I've always a been draftsman, drawing as a pursuit of leisure but having finally found a workspace where I can make a mess and have room to move, I've expanded full throttle into the painting medium. It's a new frontier but everything in art is related to the ability to draw and create an image. At least that's what I think.
My collections: I have a small Dickens collection and a volume of poetry by Bryant. I find these items by browsing independant used book stores and garage sales occasionally.
My interests: art, writing, books, travel, music and canadian football.
