Artist’s Statement 05-10-2024
“Art Muse” is often used to describe the artists inspiration—the driving force behind the
creative energy. Gratification comes to us through the subtle body (the mind) and does not
discriminate its content. The Creative Explorer is always on the hunt for that particular image or
scene that captures the essence of our lived experience. What inspires me is how we can’t
really know or understand light without the darkness; the opposite is also true. Being able to
capture this contrast on a blank canvas is what motivates my creative vitality.
