Annunciation, Oil on Canvas
Lethe -- The Voyage, Oil on Canvas
Many of us as artists have had people say to us, “you have such a gift...” and for me this has been true but not in the way that it is meant.
The gift of being an artist for me is that I find absolutely everything in the world fascinating. The gift of being an artist has given me the ability to observe keenly, feel deeply, honor ideas and visions that come to me and have the courage and fortitude to express all these things in whatever form they decide to ultimately take.
This gift has pushed me to learn many forms and techniques throughout my life, and although learning them hasn’t always been easy, when the ideas and visions finally find their form and begin to take on a kind of life of their own, being an artist has been undeniably rewarding.
