Favourite style of art: Abstract Contemporary
Skin of choice: Mine. I am comfortable in it.
Personal Quote: " What is to give light must endure burning"
Interests
I think every person carries within her or him, the seed of creativity. Each one of us exists as a walking, breathing, heart-beating icon of sacred artistry. The divine potential that we all have beautifully finds expression in the art we create.

To my mind, the process of making art is far more important than the product. When someone paints a painting, writes a poem, or bakes the perfect loaf of bread, he or she fashions something tangible, of course. But also, through the work of being creative, experiences something tangible. The creative journey has inspired the artist even as the artist has created a work of inspiration.

I found my way here while I was looking for Earth-themed paintings and got lost in your gallery. Your paintings speak to me.
