This charming duo has been on and off my easel. At first the landscape was apocalyptic, with fires breaking out all over, no safe place for frogs. Friends told me it was just too scary so I lightened up until this stage--now the frogs look like they could live here.
Hope you have frogs close by, there's something innately charming about them--
could it be the old myth about kissing one, and the prince....?

I grew up in Grand Rapids, Michigan, with a lot of freedom and outdoors to run around in. All my grandparents were immigrants so I grew up with an outsider's eyes. I'm interested in making art about life, not so much art about art. Moved to Austin for my BFA at UT -- so much talent there, colleagues pushing their media techniques and working out new processes to capture the best image. A really good environment for Artists but still developing as a place for collectors. Then we had a chance to move to northern Arizona in 2016, and here we are! Can't wait to see how this vast landscape influences Alo images.
