Let me change your mind about art...
Making art is not about painting a pretty picture. It's a life philosophy. It's about being a Creator.
That means being brave enough to begin. Embracing the "not-knowing" and learning to trust.
Being a Creator means facing the challenges in the way to your vision. And every time you do you get stronger.
Art is a place to practice creating so that you can create what you want in life.
I trust my art to guide me. It's my own personal spiritual guru. Painting helps me see where I'm at, where I'm going and what I need to grow right now in my life."
