SpiritAndLight's Profile Picture
Richard D. Ackerman
Artist | Professional | Traditional Art
United States
I have been a private practice attorney in Southern California since 1994. I've also had the distinct privilege of teaching Philosophy for approximately ten years at Santa Ana College and Santiago Canyon College.

I started in art as a teenager, journalism student, assistant editor of the law school newspaper, and for enjoyment now.

I truly believe that the arts and religion are what set humankind apart from base animals. Mankind is at his/her highest forms when engaged in art, design, law, faith, creativity, and the ability to conceptualize the future.

When we deviate from our creative natures, we deviate from our very essence. Ultimate truth of reality is best expressed through the visual arts. The history of art is a repository of the advancement and, sometimes, devolution of humanity. Whatever the case, art uniquely illuminates the truths of human existence.
