I think being an artist has help me see things that others may pass by. My only hope is that I show others how I see. My art is inspired by vibrant people, places and things. There is never any rhyme or reason why I start a project, more than often the idea just comes to me, nagging to be completed. Ideas are beautiful things; you never know when one will strike you. Sometimes it's a memory thatís slightly more vivid and magical than you last remembered. Other times itís a dream that fills your mind with creativity and wonder. At times it is a calling, asking to be answered. Lastly, itís always a feeling that follows you through each stroke or mark; guiding you to create something that is an extension of yourself.
When looking at any art, my best advice to the viewer is to feel with your eyes. Youíre probably wondering how you complete such a task. Itís simply how you look at it.
