"What is the meaning of doing art for you?"
For me, making art is a way to communicate. It is better
than using words because for me the images carry deeper,
more personal meaning than words can convey. Colors and
shapes and marks all combine, like poetry or music to make
something that has both meaning and beauty for me. When
a client responds to my art and makes a purchase, I know
I have reached a place inside them, that they can truly hear
my voice, not just my words. Making my art is a way of
putting a little bit of me into the world.
