From a lifetime of painting I feel the experience has change me completely. I believe that if we were made in the image of the creator then we were created to create. Without this outlet our lives become stagnated, but with this energetic force our spirits soar. One’s creative spirit will integrate into our own philosophy, spirituality as well as all our relationships. In time, the art we create is us.
