I am an artist and maker - mainly 3D. I also have a background in metalsmithing, glasswork[all types] and Asian Brush painting. I spent much of the last 20 years teaching college level art classes, some lecture and some studio. I have had a interest in, and teaching focus, on Non Western Art. On the home front I am an avid gardener with a small urban plot. I have had experience with Scottish Estate Management and Landscape design as well as roughly 30 years of volunteer time gardening.
