As artists, to create is the reason we are here–to capture the beauty, the irony, the paradox, the love, the joy, the sorrow, the fear and anxiety, the anger-ALL OF IT. We are driven to record it, interpreting it all through our own spirits, so that generations to come will understand the meaning of our times through our visions. They will learn that there was beauty here–there was Grace and God's Blessings in spite of the turmoil–that there was Art–Great Art, and great spirited creators of that Art, and great custodians of that Art, whose loving stewardship moved that Art through time and circumstance so it could be appreciated by all. They will come to know how it survived through the darkness of the times–how it rose above the evil and the greed–above the pain and the suffering of millions of people, the loss of living creatures and the sacrifice of our earthly environment–through all of this, the beauty is that the creative spirit still lives and thrives within ourselves. The results of that spirit will continually be expressed through whatever adversity is placed in our paths. The ability to recognize raw emotional tales and give them wings is essential for the survival of our craft as well as ourselves. The stories that are immersed in our images have found us in order to be told. It is a beautiful responsibility as well as a great challenge.
My favorite muses? The extraordinary in the ordinary, the magic of the mundane, the obscure anomalies found in nature, man-made contraptions past their prime, the sublime of the ridiculous, the colorful stains of everyday living and the incredible power of Love.
