Why we are here

Art is the communication, the magic of the human spirit. If you are a human being, then you are an artist. As at arts professional and instructor, I hear all the time, I can't draw, I'm not a real artist, I can't make a stick figure. Can you hold a pencil? Can you move it around on paper? Then you can draw.

Everyone on this planet is an artist. Everyone is dying, wishing and hoping for that precious opportunity to create something that resonates with who they are. Art is a way to know who you are. It's an outlet of discovery. There is a reason we are here on this planet, and that is to create.

I don't care who you are, or what you've been told. You are an artist, you have something to say, and you can't wait for the opportunity to let it all come out.

If there is one thing I want to do in this lifetime, it's to actualize this idea fully and completely and to see people create from their hearts. It's not a coincidence that we are here, we chose this. It's time to wake up and make something that you believe in, make something's that's you.
