I have found that being an artist is a search for poetry.  I am overwhelmed with thankfulness that it has become my purpose to explore what is beauty in the world and share it with those who take the time to look.  I wake up in the morning knowing that light will fall in unexpected ways.  It is in both the simple observations and other times months of meditation that I am discovering what is human and honest.   The most wonderful part is that every set of eyes has the gift of seeing the world uniquely. My art is a constant unfolding of how I understand and discern the experience of life in this world.  I hope you enjoy what I have found so far.
