Visual Art

“I don’t know why I did not become a visual artist, because my favorite thing to do in kindergarten was finger-painting. I also love making collages and still do. I always looked forward to doing magazine layout in my journalism class in high school. I put these graphic skills to use while making calendars for Club 57.  But, I got side tracked with performing. Every now and then I create an actual art object, but never really set my mind to it as a discipline until Shari Elf and Randy Polumbo of the ART QUEEN gallery in Joshua Tree asked me to create 30 pieces of art in 30 days. I like doing conceptual sculptural pieces and was certainly inspired by Joshua Tree Junk-Dada artist Noah Purifoy. The pieces that were shown at ART QUEEN utilized found objects discovered in local thrift stores, swap meets and just garbage I collected on our property in Joshua Tree.  And of course I had some of my fake Jean Michel Basquiats which I started doing back in the 1980s. I have a lot of pieces currently in progress and hope to have another show at ART QUEEN in the future.”
