Franklin, NC

Hello, I am an artist (trained at Kendall College of Art & Design - before computers were in art!). I have spent most of my adult life as a designer and manufacturer of signage and displays. Due to a series of life events, I have shifted my focus, time and talents back to where I intended...art. I struggle daily with the concept of "what is the true purpose of art". I have come to the conclusion, that for me the process of creating art allows me to connect with people outside of my comfort zone. It even gives me the opportunity to discuss topics that are unfamiliar or controversial by asking the question...."What does that look like to you in your mind's eye?" When I started asking that question I was intrigued by the difference in peoples visions. For instance, the word SUCCESS...to me I have a clear picture of my oldest daughter graduating in the spring of 2013. However, I have learned it looks different to every person. The results are in CONNECTED.
