“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 others 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.
One place where I see this happen most powerfully is in community—a place where people come together and consider not just one person's art, but the way art as a whole, and the artists who create it, touch them.
