I play in the mud. If I feel pretentious, I call the results "ceramics". Actually, some of them are pretty nice if I do say so myself. And I do. My biggest artistic obstacle is learning to appreciate my own art, and I'm overcoming it.
I also experiment with other art forms.
I grew up in an art-dealing family, exposed to a very wide variety of artistic traditions. The Maya and Olmec traditions in particular do things for me, as do some of the older European. Surrealism does as well, but I don't think a work of art should require a major explanation on the part of the artist. If I want to say something that needs words, I write it. On the other hand, a little bit of story - what, if anything, the piece illustrates, how it came to be, a random observation - can help connect the viewer to the piece.
I sell ethnographic and ancient art on my site Baktun 13 Art
Some of my work is available on mugs and such at my CafePress shop.
