I am an artist.

I don't need to see my work on a fancy gallery wall nor do I need to sell out my workshops or paintings to know I am an artist.

I am an artist because I see beauty everywhere. In everything.

The way ice melts on a spring day, they way the clouds form during a storm, the stunning colors of the lake on a sunny day, the rust on a decaying shed and yes even the march of ants (not happy they are in my kitchen but still amazing and awesome and I was really sad I killed some of them)

I see the beauty in all those things and I HAVE to attempt to recreate that feeling in my own little way. Never do I come close to capturing the simplicity and splendor that happens naturally all around us. What I do is create something that I can keep as a reminder of the beauty of life.

I am an artist.
