Introduction Diversity has always been a part of me in the making of images. The processes of my mind who can understand? Years ago a couple of photographers chanced to see me in action as I worked on a photographic illustration. They exclaimed "You are not a photographer, you are a mad scientist!" It resonated within. A Mad Artist is a Mad Scientist with an artistic bent. :) Now that I have embraced my painting roots, I've continually added to my range of imagery (by delving into painting in all its forms, and combining with mixed media), the variations that come from that tend to perplex those who expect a sameness to one's art. So be it. I love to play. The only way I can work within the system is to do a series of one style but not limiting myself to it and to constantly try this and try that. So I have an impressionistic bent and I love the renaissance, classical style but with a contemporary twist.
