Artist Philosophy

Art has never involved itself with answering questions, it simply just asks more questions. The practice of making art, teaches you when the opportunity of an idea is working. I still don’t know what transitional or magical thing happens that makes “it” work, but realize through constant practice, that some ideas happen to fall into great pieces of art. I have also found that constantly working, raises the chances of this happening again.

Creativity is not like a light switch, that can be turned on and off at will. Working daily smooths over the rough edges of creativity.

Enjoy the work!
