Artist, Musician, Comedian
"I think if you have a gift you should try to use it daily."
Describe yourself as a maker/artist/creative
I’m an artist, musician and comedian living in northern Baltimore County on a 6-acre "farmette" - recently divorced, with several dogs, cats, pigs and chickens. My work reflects my positivity. I don't like to struggle over my art. I like to create pretty happy things - art that makes you smile. I own a pet sitting company, so there has been very little work ... very little income and very little contact with other humans during this pandemic.
What are you currently working on?
I am currently painting a watercolor commission - a portrait of two dogs. I am also painting on leather and denim jackets. My band practices once a week and we’ve developed a lot of new music during the pandemic.
Has your work shifted in response to the pandemic? How?
My artwork hasn’t changed much in regard to the pandemic. I appreciate any time I can spend making art or music and I try to work on something every day
In your opinion, what role does the creative process play in helping us confront our “new” reality?
I think if you have a gift you should try to use it daily. You can be a better person no matter what is going on in the world. The unfortunate political situation also made things oppressive for the last several years. We could all use some calm - some quiet.
Anything else you'd like to share?
I’ve really enjoyed the Made in Isolation page. People are sharing a lot of different work ... people are being nice to each other.
