Art is The Noblest of Pursuits: True Art refreshes the mind, stimulates the senses, and invigorates the soul of mankind ! True Art is a manifestation of the Human Spirit in the search for a higher consciousness. In it’s highest form it is a vital, moving and inspirational force. An artist is an architect and builder of dreams into reality. The goal of my work is to be a vessel , a channel and a medium to elaborate and transmit the energy of life and the human experience and rise above circumstance and situation by imparting a visual spirituality that is both relative and timeless. Life is a gift from God above. All that surrounds us and brings us joy and comfort is part of that gift. To be an artist is to concentrate on that joy and exploration and to perpetuate those very human emotions and make them real to others. Art is the link between understanding and being. It is man reaching for the superlative in a world of chaos and evil. The light and the darkness are in the hands of the artist, who knows them well and chooses between the two.
