    “Being an artist was not a choice for me.  I was drawn to the craft and only there find my true happiness.  Art, for me, is the result of the constant struggle –or flow – of translating soul feelings onto canvas or paper, and when given the opportunity, sharing the experience with others, and hopefully make a difference-.”
