I make art for a variety of reasons. The main reason is that it's fun to make things; I love to work with art materials and draw/paint. Art is the thing I am good at. I could certainly be in a different profession; however, color, design, making something appear three-dimensional is a true joy, as if by osmosis, I know the answer. Art is also an inner expression, and something that brings me calm and satisfaction. I also see art as a form of entertainment, and I love seeing someone delighted or moved by one of my pieces. Ultimately, my goal is really to make myself happy (sounds selfish, but it's true!) while making others happy. It's as if the happier I am, the happier my art appears, and the happier the viewer becomes.  When I channel the spirit of nature into my work, I hope that the viewer can recognize something within it, either themselves, the feeling, or their own emotional existence.
