Introduction

 

As an artist my mind’s eye searches for the unique subject - the muse - a live fantasy. This narrative is a pictorial essay of the adventures of a muse and her artist. It is a visual diary, a memoir of how that relationship was developed and how it provided the ingredients to nurture and shape the muse and entice the artist. Living, working, and traveling together for over 38 years and having similar interests in the exotic adventures of life became the focal points of our destinations.

As we traveled through cities and countrysides watching people from different cultures and experiencing their food and lifestyles we enriched our interests in art and music. Museums, galleries and churches were high priority targets during our travels. Nothing inspires an artist more than viewing centuries of great art work and nothing motivates me as an artist more than traveling with a muse.
