I believe artists are our conscience, the teachers of society.  The best artists have the ability to go deep within themselves to bring up the treasures, usually in the form of questions, which form a blueprint for a meaningful life. As an artist, I am always looking for ways to bring meaning and clarity into the world, to use my God given talent to inquire and to edify.  So I share my journey, finding and expressing insight any way I can, to whoever is willing to engage in our shared human journey.  I do this through my painting, my writing, my acting/directing, my music and my teaching.
