I have stumbled into the "art world" with a history of occupations that could be viewed as the opposite of creative. Insecurity concerning my lack of education in art has driven me to test the limits with materials and techniques. Understanding success could only come through exploring failure in my own way has been my course of study. I have used viewer reaction and awards as my degree.
Considering above all the articulation of statement by any art, eloquence is more important than sophistication. I define an artist as a person without the inhibition that they cannot convey their thoughts through creativity.
My art regardless of media or dimension has a very clear message. Respect, value, and protect the natural world that we have been given. The intricate details of its beauty are beyond our comprehension. I sincerely believe the pursuit of this art and other events in life have led me to the ultimate art and faith, the understanding of purpose.
