Artist Statement

The Importance of Art in My Life

Art has always been an important part of my life. For as long as I can remember I have enjoyed art in many forms. As the child of an artist I was raised with a great appreciation for art and its ability to provide a positive outlet. Even for children it is more than a crayon and a piece of paper; it is what is inside of you. The feelings you may not be able to say, you can express in your drawings, photos or stories.

Art as Therapy

Art is to me is what therapy is for others. That may sound strange but it has always been a way for me to express myself and let go of the many stresses in my life.

Capturing Emotions and Life's Moments

When I am able to capture not only an image of a person but the actual person inside, it makes me feel a little more alive.
