“I always wanted to be an artist, and I found out along the way that the making of the art was the best part. It still doesn’t matter to me which direction I choose. I can be just as happy working with watercolors as I am painting with oil paints or working in clay or digging in the gardens. I get up early in the morning & go right to work in the studio. I always start out with a sketch, revise it, do more idea sketches and think about the object from every angle before I begin making anything. This method has served me well.” “If I am not making something, I am miserable.” Roger DeMuth
