Fresh outlook
Trying to find light in a dark part in my life.

I'm going to do a dangerous thing and seek opinions. If two good friends have a trust broken, is it better to ignore it after and pretend to still be good friends even though you never actually talk. Or deal with the problem in genuine converse until both sides get closure, even if the result is a dead friendship?

Creation: to give life to something new.
Art: defines the human experience through creation.
Independence: freedom from the influence or control of others.
Me: an independent artist who believes that life is art and art is alive.

I want to create beauty that lifts the soul. Life is Art and Art is Alive, therefore when I create I am making life. These two are inextricable.

Art is a cycle. It has no beginning or end because it is the interpretation of humanity; thought, existence and imagination. As a human expresses' the act of living by creating art, so art becomes alive itself, carrying on the life from which it came, sharing that life with each viewer. When we understand this, the potential for artistic creation becomes boundless.

My challenge is the exploration of potential. A starving artist in every sense of the word, my greatest hunger is to learn. My drive for knowledge gives me the energy to expand the boundaries of my materials, of physics, of my own physical stamina and most of all the boundaries of my mind. I have only just begun my journey into imagination and how it relates to the world around me. My work is always to find the most accurate expression of my original individual physical and spiritual perception. Space; environment is my medium. I will use any material needed to shape and control the world that I might share the unique sensory and visionary experience of life!

I am a sculpture, painting and history instructor at an Art studio in Ohio. I love creating public works!
