Creativity is a God-given gift meant to be used.  When shared, it enlightens, blesses, reprimands, humbles and encourages the listener.  Or viewer.  In 1990, a life-changing encounter with great guitar taught me that creativity expressed in music comes from the same inner source as my own method of self-expression: drawing.  Over the years, certain musicians have been sent my way to encourage, challenge and inspire me. They have taught me to be true to my muse, to move forward & never compromise, to be dedicated, fearless and most of all have fun.

Good music, of many styles and forms, continues to inspire me deeply.
