God, the Great Creator, has endowed in all of us the same capability to create if we only pursue and persist in this activity. My personal visual quest in artistic expression is a culmination of many images gathered in my life’s journey. For me, producing creative work, whether it is murals, faux finishes, or two-dimensional paintings, gives me joy. Once in my studio, time can pass in an instant. Finding the time to capture all the images that surface is my most persistent problem. Any unsolicited affirmation the “ohs” and “ahs” that occurs when viewers look at my work is an added blessing.
