There are two essential questions every artist must answer; how do I see the world and how do I view myself inside of it? It takes a lifetime to seek resolutions to these important questions. As you mature, the unique imprint you make on the world brings who you are closer into focus. For me, long hours, hard work, failure, resiliency, compassion and bravery shape the path where I travel today. Pursuing art as an interest has led and keeps leading me to wonderful places. Some of these destinations bring wonder, some have brought healing, but most have ignited the passion to experience more. So I play, I work, I create. This world is grand in its complexity and trying to capture a sliver of that is all I can do as an artist.
