All of my learning takes place in the process not in the end result. The end result is placed out there for the publc to learn/engage/and to question the art which has been laid at their feet. I love to see where the art making process is taking me because where I start is never where I end up so I learn to just say when, because sometimes it is best to leave more room for interpertation from the public. I try not to compare my artistic ideas to anyone elses ideas because there is only one me and my art is my art and no one else will create what I see. On the other hand I love to learn from other artists, collaboration is a real joy for me, I thrive on deadlines and the creative energy which comes from a group of individual artistic people. I like to leave my ego at the door and just create something fun and carefree or spirtual and enlightining. I have always thought of myself as a creative arts artists I dabble in many art forms form Visual Art/Music/Theater/Writing and Dance and love to fold these art forms into eachother.
