Maybe you came to my site because you're a photographer too, and you're searching for inspiration. Or maybe you're working your 9-5 trying to find a way to fulfill that entrepreneurial spirit in you, seeking with everything in you a path to make your art a full time job.
Or maybe you don't even know why you're here. And that, my lovely friend, is wonderful too.

I find my best work is inspired by those that recognize we are all artists-- that there is great art just waiting to be made from every soul born upon this planet. I know this, because ardently inside of us is this great spirit to create, to connect to others. That means you, should you only be willing to pick up your torch-- the one that only you can--  and carry it high.

I believe Marianna Williamson said it best:
"We ask ourselves, Who am I to be brilliant, gorgeous, talented, and fabulous? Actually, who are you not to be? You are a child of the Universe. Your playing small does not serve the world. There is nothing enlightened about shrinking so that other people will not feel insecure around you. We are all meant to shine, as children do... It is not just in some of us; it is in everyone and as we let our own light shine, we unconsciously give others permission to do the same. 
As we are liberated from our own fear, our presence automatically liberates others."
