As Vincent Van Gogh said:
“I want to touch people with my art. I want them to say, “he feels deeply, he feels tenderly”.
I feel this quote sums up my drive to create rather succinctly.
I have come to the conclusion that I will continue to be an “emerging artist” as my creative spirit does not seem to be able to settle into a “consistent body of work” which as I understand, is the expectation for “success” in the art market. I have come to terms with this, and it is a choice that I am willing to live with rather than compromise and stilt the creative spirit within.
I truly believe that self expression thru art practice is embedded in my DNA and proven as such from an early age. I am driven to create, to constantly learn and improve, to share and touch people, and to connect on an emotional and at times a visceral level.
It is a grand adventure, and I am very grateful for what this opportunity has given me.
