I made a decision not too long ago to choose Light. Joy. To choose yes. This was the best decision I’ve ever made. It was also a matter of timing. I never left the art behind; it was always present in my life. It was my salvation and my ticket out of so many ugly, anxious moments. Every day that I’m in my studio with the sunlight pouring through the skylights and my dog Lila snoozing on the sofa, I am happy. Joyous. In celebration of Life, the Good and the Curiosity of what will happen next.
I hope these feeling come through in my work. I know my creations are not meant to be left in my studio, nor necessarily made for me. They are my contribution to, well, you! I want you to experience pieces of my joy, energy and wonder. I want to inspire you to say yes to Life. To stretch and take risks, ponder those crazy colors I use, feel a shift of just maybe doing something different today. A step in a new direction. Or trading in those dark clothes for something brighter. Perhaps something in red?
