Creativity is the language of inspiration. The titillation of that language can be expressed in many forms to awaken our senses. Artists are creative synthesizers as much as they are originators.
We see, we feel and express in many different mediums; from dance, music, food to the visual arts.
This is where I come in. I am inspired by many diverse art mediums.
I've been an artist all of my life and in each stage I have explored many avenues and visual expressions. Every new art medium becomes a steppingstone to the next creation.
What I have learned from 45 years of studying calligraphy and drawing, manifests in my steel work with the visual dance I use on the surface of my steel sculptures.
I draw from the fantasy world my I see in my mind.
I'm inspired by the permanence of steel – the strength and fragility of clay, and as a calligrapher I am drawn to the power of words.
We all have collective influences that have influenced our lives which allows all of us to be creative in our own way. There are many ways to embrace creativity, a lot of it is just to move forward with intention, one step at a time.... that's when the fun begins…
