"Technique and skills must be absorbed 
and wrapped up and put away to become 
such an integral part of yourself that they 
will be revealed in your work 
without your thought."

that have always belonged to you.

will never die."

"If you want to understand today,

~ Pearl Buck 

8 x 10" Alcohol Ink on Yupo

"I believe that imagination is stronger than knowledge. 
That myth is more potent than history. That dreams 
are more powerful than facts. That hope always 
triumphs over experience. That laughter is the 
only cure for grief. And I believe that love 
is stronger than death."
 ~ Robert Fulghum

Distracted But Committed

“Persistence. Perfection. Patience. 
Power. Prioritize your passion. 
It keeps you sane.”
