Artist Statement


The creator of worlds

Enter a world entirely of my own
A world of dream entangled with reality
Only seen and understood when given a home

On a physical plane

That bridges the gap between reality and the imagined

So Breath in and let go
Leave everything behind
Follow each line and curve

Let each color and texture tug at your heartstrings
Feel and remember the steps you took
The steps that lead you here
And then take one more
Cross the boundary of space and time

Let go of reality

For this is the world that I have made
Where love is free and safety promised
Where pain and fear are buried
Beneath you

For you shall tread upon them as they pave the road forward

So come, come forward
In strength and dignity
With head held high

To stand upon all that would tear you down

And breathe
Release your chains of regret

And step forth into a world bathed in light and wonder
For this is the world that I have made and I see that it is good
