The Six Dog Studio was my original website I developed in 1999. It featured many of my paintings and photos. Since then, I have written a large number of poems about animals, cats, dogs, friends, love, life and nature. So A Poets Corner was developed to feature all my work, both past and present. I became an artist when I was fifty years old and painted about 450 paintings. Each painting seemed to be telling me a story, so I started to write poetry about the paintings. I have a large collection of poetry and I hope you enjoy reading my poems.

Touched by Beauty
We all want to be touched
by wonderful music, beautiful art, love of our fellow man.
To be moved, drawn, taken to places unknown.
To feel an overwhelming chill from a beautiful orchestral phrase,
to be filled with warmth and joy from the color of a canvas,
to feel the wonder from touching the creativity of mankind.
How music, art and poetry cause such emotion is unknown,
but we all know when we are there –
what a cold world it would be without
the beauty of music, art and poetry.
