Art is one of those passions that has always been with me. At one level or another I have always been involved with with my creating side. Sometimes though, I wrestled with the angels who kept opening the artistic doors that I kept trying to shut, not realizing the pursuit of art was an acceptable pursuit for me.
I found that I was absenting myself from a space in which I always belonged. I'm back now and touching the magic again in a place I can only describe as a 'calling'.
Art started young in me, before anyone understood what was happening and what they should do with me. I started tracing pictures that captivated my attention and then one day an epiphany came and I realized, "Why trace when I could just draw them freehand?" So, draw them I did, and did, and did.
My love of one on one creation, composition, line, shape, shadow and color began.
Fascinated by art and life from an early age, I've always engaged my creative gifts in every endeavor I have participated in including drawing, painting, sculpting, writing, teaching and motivating others to engage and explore their own created gifts.
Everything in God's creation fascinates me in both the physical and spiritual plane of existence. I am most drawn to people however, because people are the epitome of God's creation and made in God's own image and likeness. No wonder they are so fascinating.
I have a penchant for reading people and events and translating what I observe into an expression, often drawing into the depths of my own spiritual life to bring the images inside of me out into the open.
Feeling, mood and motion I hope are hallmarks of my work. Nothing is static.
There is always a message in the making...always.
