When I prepared for this show, I went through my portfolios and found these drawings. I started a series of portraits consisting of sunglass reflections a while ago. I hope to get back to this, as well as some other projects including farm animals, and abstract landscapes. I am happy with most of the work I have done, but feel the need to change and explore new techniques and subject matter. Growing and exploring makes me feel engaged with the world, and optimistic. When I create art, I get into an emotional space that I was in as a younger person. I can guess that other artists feel this way too. It is fun, and I am grateful to have an occupation that lets me experience creativity, adventure, and work from my heart.
