I've been known to say that creativity nourishes the mind and as an educator, artist, and author I believe it to be so. Art is a great medium to bridge many gaps separating our communities. There is power, and beauty, and peace, and relaxation in creating as well as viewing the creation that is art.
My personal joy is heighten at the time my brush meets the canvas or shutter exposes light to render form. It is very satisfying to turn a blank canvas into visional nourishment. The paintings I create are filled with color and a calming flow of spiritual expression.
