“An artist is not someone who draws or paints. An artist is someone who sees and hears what others do not see or hear.”
My goal as an artist has always been to help people open their eyes and ears, to see themselves and the world around them in a new light, to look beyond the obvious to the truth which winds its way through all of creation. Where I see this happen most powerfully is in community—a place where people can come together and consider not just one person's art, but the way art touches them as humans.
