|My art incorporates a variety of styles and adaptability, reflecting the variety of my interests, and experience.|
|An artist's truest fulfillment comes when the God-given gift of this talent is shared with others, and appreciated by all.|
I believe the hands are just the secondary tool of Creativity, as part of the artist's body. Sometimes that secondary tool is the voice, as it is for singers, poets, and orators. Sometimes that secondary tool is the entire body itself, a moving means of expression for the dancer. The primary tool is the union of mind and heart, wielding imagination and passion, respectively. Talent is the necessary aptitude, the desire, the affinity, the calling, and it is a gift bestowed by a higher power.
Skill is that which is acquired through knowledge and practice, continuously honed by time and effort. Talent and skill may exist independently of one another, but in combination a greater fulfillment is possible.
All else are tertiary tools... the pencil, the paintbrush, the paper, the computer, the guitar, the piano, the pen, the microphone, the clay... and on and on.
