Glad you stopped by!

I hope you stay awhile, even if you're not a big fan of art. Don't be afraid. I don't have a purpose to turn everyone I meet into an art connoisseur.

I'm not the type of artist who tortures a sane person with too much talk about bold brush strokes and endless conversations about the importance of art to a human existence.

I don't think it's necessary for everyone to 'understand' art. Heck, even I don't understand most art… I just believe it's kinda cool when a person can appreciate some art, and I'm happy when some of that art is mine...

Just as most other artists I do need an audience. It's true that as an artist you create a lot of your work for yourself. Because you HAVE TO. There are emotions, thoughts, and ideas inside of you that you just have to let out. Nonetheless, I realize that no matter how much artists would like to believe it's all about them, in reality art is hardly about the people who create it. Art could be construed as a silent dialogue between the artist and his/her audience. However, to be valid it has to rely solely on the audience's participation and interpretation of the subject. Ultimately, there is no art without an audience (be it an audience of one or a million). So, I whole-heartedly hope that you will be my audience. If only for a bit. Please don't hesitate to let me know what you think of my art, my musings, or whatever else you feel like sharing with me.
