Hello Guys and Dolls,
Another day passes for each of us in our own little worlds. My world sometimes feels more like fantasy than real, or is that the other way round. Being an Artist seems to make me think I am living in a world all my own.
When I create the things that want to jump out of my head I sometimes do it instinctively. Everything around me in my life influences the work. I continually work, hoping that each art piece brings growing experiences and with that improves my techniques as well. Someone once say "practice makes perfect". I don't know about perfect but improvements are always helpful.
An interviewer asked who was my biggest influence in the arts. I don't think who covers this question, you need to add what, when and where. I can't choose just one person, many Artists have encouraged my work and I would have to say that is a big influence. I guess many famous Artists began my journey, but the ones who are in my live day to day also are big influences.
Many Local Artist influence me, such as
James Wyatt Hendricks
Well the list is too long to put in a short newsletter.
These local Artists have been instrumental in encouraging me to press on with my art. I thank all these artists who have been so helpful in my career as an artist. Without their support it would have been difficult for me.
So I leave everyone with this quote; no man is an island.
