About The Artwork

Koi in the Japanese Friendship Garden in Fresno, California, were the inspiration for this piece. Brian Beck provided the inspiration for the title. It somehow fit the image of swimming in circles. Swimming in circles seems to fit what life often feels like, especially in pandemic times.

My art studio is named Scraps. I create collage art from recycled magazines. Being an artist is my third career. After 20 years as a Presbyterian pastor and 22 years teaching theatre to high school students, I retired to take up the career I imagined as a boy. I've been creating Scraps art for over 35 years for family and friends, and I've made random sales on a sporadic basis, but now I want to share my art with a larger audience. As a first step I opened a studio/gallery in downtown Fresno to create a dedicated space for my creative endeavors. My second step is entering the world of online art sales. My taste is eclectic and I enjoy finding beauty in a wide range of subject matter. I work with repurposed scraps of color and texture. My palette is created as I rip through many magazines at a time, surrounding myself with stacks of pages that find their way into file folders. Originally I worked only with torn scraps. Eventually I allowed myself the use of scissors, especially in human forms. At times the scrap I think I need is impossible to find. Improvisation then becomes the name of the game. Sometimes the best effects are the result of happy accidents. I enjoy incorporating recognizable images into my collages. Have fun playing “Where’s Waldo?” Enjoy the big picture, but often you need to take a closer look to discover what’s hidden.
