Exploring the Artist
Our journey through life is an exploration. If you are a creative individual, with an artistic flare, then becoming an artist is no different. You explore your creativity with different styles or art to find out who you are and what you love. You look for what you are most comfortable with. So finding art, it’s also a journey of discovery.
Photography sparked my creativity and I moved forward from there.

I’m still exploring and it’s still a learning curve. It's a journey with an equal measure of happiness and despair. Just like life...
