Dear Friends and Art Lovers,
As a child I was a voracious reader and writer, but I also loved to make things. Later, when I entered the Rhode Island School of Design as a sculpture major, I resolved to quit writing. I was afraid it would keep me in my intellect and distract me from learning visual thinking skills. So, except for artist bios and grant applications, I quit writing – for fifty years!
Now having sculpted for half a century, with no fear of losing my visual acumen, I’ve returned to writing – mainly because now I have something to say.
For this reason, I am enhancing my art website to include writing projects. For the past three years I’ve been working on a memoir, which will be complete in 2023. The working title is Eros and the Artist.
Please see the attached document for a short piece I read at Village Books in Bellingham, WA, for an anthology I am published in called True Stories, Volume IV. It’s from the Prologue of my memoir.
