I started signing my work like this when I was a kid, after my grandmother praised it as a creative way of combining the letters of my first name. I’ve signed all my art like this ever since. I loved staying with my grandparents. They lived in a 3-story log cabin surrounded by mountains, and covered in sagebrush, piñons, and junipers. I’m sure I owe a good deal of my capacity for creativity to grandmother and spending time in the hills chasing butterflies and lizards. Do you see it?
