I have always been driven to create something. Whether it was painting,sculpture, leathercraft, gardening, crochet… I had to learn how to make something new, or make something beautiful that wasn’t before. I constantly look for new skills and techniques to expand my abilities because there is always that look or that feeling I want to capture but haven’t yet. Whether anyone likes what I do or not, I have to touch that creative process somehow on a daily basis or I myself stop growing. I have also recently discovered my art as a way to express ideas and concepts in a way that I believe works better than words.
