Arts involvement: Bad Art by Good People. I enjoy local theater.

Special skills or interests: Play-by=play broadcasting is a big interest. I love to do it, listen to it, and read about it. I enjoy movies and playing cards.

Comments about your artwork: Inspired by my twin 11-year-old sons. We all love baseball and watch/listen to Cleveland Guardians games every night. They both love to play and my favorite thing to do is watch them. We attend many minor and major league games. My art had to feature baseball!
