Sport and target shooting is about my connections with my family; with my father and grandfather and uncles and sister. It’s an outlet for my energy, for my competitive nature, for my mental focus. It’s my friends and my community. I resist and resent the labels, the assumption that we’re all “rednecks” or uneducated or “gun nuts” or “right wing”, the idea that we don’t care as much (or more) about firearms safety than those who don’t own guns, the accusation that we aren’t just as horrified by shooting tragedies as everyone else. Let’s back away from the extremes, stop listening to the lobbyists, and find a dialogue together.

These thread painted portraits of my dogs Bullett, Missy, and Pumpkin were designed to capture the flavor of their personalities. Watch out for Missy, she'll give you the evil eye!

I'm definitely black and white and "read all over" as the old bad joke goes, although my preferred color has always been pink rather than red. Books have played a huge role in my life, helping to shape and define who I am as much as the unique biological indicators we more often think of when considering identity. What has influenced who you are?
