To create is to explore the imagination, to honor tradition, to discover beauty and harmony, and to look beyond the known. I believe the creative process; creates the creator. What inspired an artist during the early stages of development evolves, changes, adapts and matures over time... Just as the seed grows, so does the planter.
Words may attempt to describe the work and thoughts may give rise to reasons, but the artist knows that his or her true creative expression comes from the soul. Either the work speaks to you... or it doesn’t.
As I venture down the creative path of discovery, I often look to nature for guidance. I believe we are 'a part' of our environment not apart from it. As the seasons change, I am reminded of the cycle of our lives. Everything comes full-circle... has its opposite: life and death, sun and moon. We are creation born... lead back to the creator.
Isamu Noguchi once said: “Art is everywhere. The whole world is art. The only thing is some people see it and some people don't. If one is truly awake, he/she will see that the whole world is a symphony.”
