Created to Create

This is the first piece of paper that I kept as a success. It has texture and is soft to the touch. Just like a moth. And like the moth is drawn to light I am drawn to the making process. I have to make. It isn't something I can suppress for long. All you makers out there know what I'm saying, right? We couldn't stop if we tried. Some of us are dancers, some of us are sculptors, some of us share with prose and some of us share and share and share our multi talents because we are inspiration personified! The fact is that we are the makers and we create because we must. We create because there is nothing more we'd rather do. We create because we were created to create. 

More Than Meets the Eye

Did you ever stop and wonder what she could possibly be holding inside? There is a river there. It winds and aches. It bursts and blooms. There is absolutely always more than meets the eye. You know this because you feel it too. And yet people are just cashiers, people are just library assistants, people are just another driver who cut in front of you without permission. There is more than this brief encounter. We are more than we let on. And beyond this deep demure disguise there is also light. If you can, let it shine and if you can't I know it's there all the same. 

Art with Intention

I am a observer and listener to all the details in a moment. I absorb. And what I've found is that a great deal of time and energy is spent on destruction and spite. It is by no means the only thing, but it certainly seems to be a significant dose. I don't want to add to this negativity. I want to produce art that is beautiful, yes, but art that makes you feel good. I wish for you to feel calm or pleased in the way a small smirk creeps onto your face. As a visual culture and a visual artist I am adding to the daily dose of your dreams and ideas. What I produce and you see matters. It is intentional. And I hope that it brings you joy.
