Art has been my life since I was a child. I would watch my mother paint and see that faraway look in her eyes as she worked and created and I wondered where she was.
I think that expression is what I now understand. It’s not so much what I am creating but what I feel and sense while creating. It’s about what I become while creating and when I don’t become that, at the end of the day, I am lost.
Music is an essential aspect of my art. It’s not always constant what I listen to but it does have to help send me to that place I need to be to create. Music folds around my spirit and lets my heart and mind blend, working together as the force that is responsible for my art.
I feel blessed because as an artist I experience, on a daily basis, that inner voice that speaks silently to me…. that connects me so securely to that universal life force. Creating is never about thinking. When I start thinking I know it’s time to stop what I’m doing. It’s all about sensing and feeling and never forcing but allowing.
