Artistic Statement


“If I lose the light of the sun, I will write by candlelight, moonlight, no light. If I lose paper and ink, I will write in blood on forgotten walls. I will write always. I will capture nights all over the world and bring them to you”
― Henry Rollins


Because I contain far more
then the contents of my content
Because I need somehow
to empty my being
before I explode
Because I need to relieve the pressure
of emotional storms and idea that
strike like lightning too fast and hard
I will create from the inside out.


Because as I express myself
I learn more of who I am
Because when I create art
I create myself as who I wish to be
Because there is expression
that comes through me not from me
I will create from the outside in


Because I see things in ways
no one else can or will
Because I have talent
and unused it will putrefy
Because I’ve grown addicted
to artistic expression
as a growth medium
I will to create
and I will create.

  1. Beautiful and powerful sentiments. There is something profound we discover when we start to give ourselves away… Thank you for the ringing declaration of authenticity and the recognition of the inside-out, outside-in nature of unfolding being…
