As life goes, we change and our vision of the path forward, changes... we grow and it brings a need to replace what was with more of who we are.

Recently looking back at the path and intention of the page, and the website, I realized that it does not reflect the truth of my soul.

Listening to those that guided me on the path to set up my page and website, I lost sight of the truth about art for me.

Over time art that has always been a reflection of the soul of the artist, their passion, love, hates, self-illusions, hopes dreams and more. Art that spoke to and inspired the viewer, and the hearts and the souls of those that look upon it. Yet over time, artists were forced to abandon the true purpose of art and replaced it with consumerism driven works.

Art created to make a living, artist fighting to make ends meet, and in the process, we lose the soul passion, that fuels our creative flow. As do our art... in light of the past 5 years, battling with the focus of selling works and earning and more, I sat back today and decided, that its time to return to my truth...

by changing the intention, of creating art to sell, back to creating art that opens the souls of those that see it. This turn marks the birth of a revised logo, one that pulls away from the old one the uncertainty of what it represented, to a surety that my art is worthy of my truth, and that it will once more open the hearts of those that see it.

New Logo by Anuden

Time to return to making art that flows from me like it always has.
