What are the most expressive art forms, in your opinion?
It’s difficult to pinpoint the most expressive ones. I enjoy all of them, including the forms which incorporate several different art forms all together. Artists who are able to express themselves through various forms of art are very fortunate because they can delve deep into their inner selves to create and thus give great enjoyment to others.
Watching films are a wonderful way that I’ve found to enjoy several of these Art forms combined in the comfort of my home, if I’m not able to see a live concert, play, etc. There are many films which include several of the Arts, such as music, dance, literature, painting, sculpture, etc. I’ll list some of my favorites…
These are some FANTASY MOVIES which incorporate great Literature, Music, Dance, Painting, etc:
Contemporary ones: The Tolkien Movies: “THE LORD OF THE RINGS TRILOGY” and “THE HOBBIT TRILOGY,” “HARRY POTTER” movies, the “ONCE UPON A TIME” TV series, etc. Continue reading →

How does it feel to be a published author?
I’m very happy to be one. I really enjoy sharing my art work, my fantasy ideas, and my vision with all who are interested.
Are you working on a new book project?
Presently I’m working on an illustrated book of a very famous poem in the public domain. I feel that my version of this is a whimsical and imaginative one which hopefully will bring enjoyment to many.
What was the first book you ever read?
I have very fond memories of reading a poetry book by A.A. Milne, the author of the Winnie the Pooh books. It was entitled “When We Were Very Young”. These poems seemed very sweet and understandable to me when I was a child. I also loved the adorable illustrations in it by E.H. Shepard.

What is your writing schedule? Do you jump out of bed with coffee in hand or are you an afternoon writer? What conditions do you like to write under? I enjoy a relaxed atmosphere to write in. My schedule is not planned. I write when the spirit moves me. Since I am also a painter, and my writing goes hand in hand with my art work, my text is often influenced by the images I depict on canvas and paper.
How do you start to write a book? What is the first step? I daydream about my ideas. Then I write things down in a sort of “Stream of Consciousness” state. I then refine these so that they will be understandable to others. If I try to “force” ideas, they don’t come out well. I feel that writing, as well as painting, are enjoyable outlets for me. If I feel inspired and gratified in this process of creation, I am hopeful that others will also enjoy the fruits that develop from my efforts.
What was the hardest part of writing your book? I go over my books quite a few times, looking for mistakes. Often I see quite a few of them. I am always looking for perfection. But I never seem to achieve that aim. And so that is the most difficult part of creating my books.
