Art enriches, inspires, educates. It's done all those things for me. I think about how art, any art and mine in particular, can make a difference.
Truth matters, honesty and integrity matter, helping others and standing up for others matters. I refuse to live in a place of fear and hate. My art is always vibrant and energetic, even when speaking to difficult subjects - not as a way of glossing over but as a way of leading with hope and positivity.
