Why Do I Make Art?

Bringing life to a surface using color, line and form in any medium is a transformative act.  Something from nothing is the essence of creation.  The lonely process of artistic creation becomes worthwhile when it's result speaks to others.  Reaching a state of communication and empathy with the viewer is what great Art can accomplish.  Every viewer of an Artwork brings with them their own experience and takes away a changed reality because of what they have seen.  I love sharing my visual stories.
