Artist statement and about the artist
I grew up in Appalachia Tennessee in a family of artists, surrounded by the beauties the Big South Fork National Park had to offer. I first attended art school and attained a BA at Berea College; I then attained a web development degree at Black Hawk College, before going on to nursing school at Sumner College.
With my art I wish to send windows into its viewers souls for seeing in new ways, other than through the binoculars they were brought up with, ‘which I might add, are not always the binoculars they should stick with.
With art I aim to please. With it, I aim to show all that it is winnable, whether it is world peace, world patience, or world happiness. Through creating together, one learns it is patience, humbleness, and a willingness to cooperate, that these other things can become a reality.
I believe we all search an escape that will miraculously bring us to our childhood, or our oneness. To come into our own so to speak, even if only for a little bit, is invaluable. They say, “We are all lost till we find ourselves”, and this is one of the manners I do that, if but a slice?
