Welcome.

I think art is an important part of living a civilized life.  It helps us look at the world and look inside ourselves.  It helps us grow, and appreciate what we have and what we want.  Certain pieces of art will speak to you and will make a connection to your soul.  We can't predict when that will happen.  When I create art, I have an idea in mind when I start.  I get so excited about the idea that I can't sleep.  But then I work on the piece and the art takes me to unexpected places.  In the end, the art becomes what feels right, what it wants to be in the world.  I hope you enjoy sharing my artistic journey.
