In response to Gabrielle's question "What drives you to create....to make art...to show your inner self or just play?" I offer this.

The manipulation of light and texture until that silent, inner bell tolls
is an act of anticipation that feeds a need for making order of these elements according to the inner eye.

The hope that this personal order will have a degree of universal appeal drives one to hold up the finished work and say "Behold - a piece of what makes me unique".
This hope is a secondary type of anticipation often tinged with fear.

Those lucky, brave or smart enough to skip this second anticipation will reap the best of what a creative drive can give us. Total self-satisfaction.

Ooooh the "Silent, inner bell" sentence is too wonderful. That;s a great artist statement. Short, to the point and so descriptive. Thanks for a great description of your creative process.
