What Art Means to Me
Art is a wonderful thing to me. I find great inspiration and happiness in painting; I think painting is so different from other visual media. I’m not sure why; maybe it’s because it’s hard to know what the painter meant, which makes a painting a little mysterious.
Always Learning How
I’m obsessed with documenting what I do and how I do it. I’m just as fascinated with what inspires other artists. When I was younger, I was less likely to study other artists’ work, in what I now consider a pointless effort to be “original.” Now I feel that art is at its core influenced
and collaborative, and I believe that embracing new ideas and techniques broadens one’s ability to speak in art. When I find a new material or a new subject, my art becomes more fresh and rejuvenated.
I’m so honored to be represented by the Turning Leaf Gallery in Blue Ridge, Georgia (they are located at 651 East Main Street
Blue Ridge, GA 30513 ) and you can see their website at www.turningleafwoodart.com
