I believe that the need for art is inherent in everyone. Art inspires us and consoles us, makes us laugh and makes us cry. It can resonate within us emotions that we have forgotten or never knew we had. Art reflects the history, the values, the hopes, and the fears of humanity. It is part of our nature to both express ourselves and to see, hear, read, and absorb the expressions of our fellow human beings.
For some of us the desire to create art is reflected in our life’s work, and the world calls us an artist. To be a part of this communication is a privilege. To know that you have touched someone's' life in a positive and primal way is one of the greatest rewards that one could ever hope to achieve. I am thankful to have been given this desire and for the support of family, friends, and patrons to pursue it.
