As an artist, people tend to think of me as "a one man show." But it's not true, I have a huge supporting cast. Yes, I work alone from start to finish on my piece. But, in between it's creation, in between each piece-- it's all my acquaintances, friends, and family that help steer my creativity with their feedback.
Creativity is choosing to connect these dots and choosing the right dots to get to a final image.
Here is one of my last pieces. It started out as a oregon beach scene with a couple looking out at the sunset. It became a comical caribou with sunglasses. I simply connected the dots of feedback and came out with something different that makes me laugh.
