We know all too well that this world can be brutal, yet at the same time, it’s also a magnificent creation full of wondrous splendor. Trying to capture the world around me through art not only opens my eyes to its beauty, but invites me to pass into it and feel as if I’ve grasped it, even if only for a moment.
Art has opened up a doorway of knowledge, beauty, and wonder that I do not think I would have discovered otherwise. Art allows me, as Emerson said, to “drink the wild air.”
I started this website and blog to share my creative journey in the hopes that it might inspire others (like you!) to grasp a bit of this glorious, beautiful world for yourself.
I’m a longtime educator and writer but a very short time artist. In other words, I’m not a professional. I’m fumbling through this adventure, but I’m having the time of my life.
Post tenebras lux!
