Bittersweet Gallery Tales


An interesting memory. It was one of my first shows. I was glad to be included, though when I came by the gallery to see my work (with works by other artists), I noticed that it was placed near the floor, adjacent to a power outlet.

For my very first gallery show (a different show, which I paid to participate in), my prints were hung at the end of a long corridor– just outside of the restroom.

Being an artist can be frustrating.

Maybe all of that is why I scaled back on the ambition at bit and started focusing more on my own creativity, sharing and archiving.

I am a multidisciplinary artist living in South Saint Louis, MO with my wife and our 2 cats. A lot of my art has to do with the experience of living in a thriving, diverse city.
