K-JEWEL FM, FRESNO, CA - TROWZERS AKIMBO INTERVIEW

Burdened with the responsibility to promote the event, the conversation prompted Mark to grab his video camera and ask me if I'd let him interview me. This is the result.

I've discovered over the years (I've considered myself an artist since the age of 5 or 6), that I appear to have an abnormal interest in all visual art forms and visual mediums. I used to believe all artists shared this "across the board" interest with me, but have learned that most, instead, prefer to focus on a subset. This means I enjoy studying the latest wall of new graffiti in my neighborhood as much as spending time with Monets or Picassos.
My wide interest span led to my working with oils, acrylics, watercolors, pastels, film, ...
