The empowerment of art and the art-making process is something very special. To be truly inspired is an altered state of awareness. The experience of the maker is different than that of the viewer. Art has many avenues and levels and, as a maker, I enjoy the fluidity of flowing from one level to another. This freedom has taken me to places I could not have imagined I'd go. I begin with a concept yet am willing to change direction should a better opportunity reveal itself.
