My artistic journey as a visual artist did not begin when I was in school, nor did it begin early in my professional career in commercial photography. My journey truly began on May 5th, 2011, that was the day I was hit by a car as I was riding a bicycle. The accident seemed unfair and a debilitating setback, however this would serve as the catalyst to help me realize and define my artistic vision. Being house and wheelchair bound for months allowed me to think about the current direction my career was heading and how it was no longer what I desired. A bumper sticker that said ‘Live Art’ was the final bit of information needed to take a huge hint from the universe. Letting go and living art allowed this answer to begin multiplying and has not stopped since. In the process providing a plethora of inspirations, insights, amazing people and experiences. As is common for artists certain sacrifices must be made in the quest to manifest your desired reality and to allow your vision to blossom. However you realize these sacrifices are the very lessons that allow for further inspiration and are fuel for the road you are traveling. Live Art!
