The Poetry of the Aged: Interview with Dutch Figurative Painter, Francien Krieg

"She took off her clothes and every move she made was for me pure poetry. She was like a living painting to me.

Closer to Wildness: Interview with Oregon Artist Irene Hardwicke Olivieri

"I realize that many people might never read what I write in a painting, but I like knowing that if they do, they might find something interesting, like the text in one painting describes how to raise caterpillars, another describes aphrodisiac recipes from around the world.
