My cousin once said to me, “I think everyone is creative. They just have to find their medium.” I think he’s right. I never really found mine until I started painting crazy designs on an old clock about ten years ago. It was the perfect antidote for a rather stressful job; I craved coming home and picking up my brush – and I’ve been doing it ever since. I finally took a big break from the stress to travel and found myself in a junk shop in Montrose, Colorado, in 2009. An old abacus caught my eye and my brain went a little nuts thinking of the possibilities. This project took four years and has been by far my favorite.

Once done, I had no idea what to do with it but a friend suggested making a poster and selling it. I want to thank the Merritt Gallery for giving me the chance to do just that, helping to raise money for the Alzheimer’s Drug Discovery Foundation and making this project count a bit more.
