Specialty: photography and digital art
|My art reflects my philosophy. To me, something is art if it is uplifting or beautiful, or if it motivates someone to do a humanitarian act. I do not recognize the ugly and disgusting as having artistic merit.|
My art makes a statement about who I am. I strive to be a Renaissance woman. To that end, I have worked on increasing my knowledge in many different areas, including music, languages, martial arts, science, and law. While it is not possible to know everything, it is possible to strive for personal excellence. My art also reflects my personality in the sense that I do not limit myself to one medium. Rather, I seek to master those media in which I can best express my artistic ideas.
My art ultimately reflects my belief in God, Who is absolutely good, and Who provided us with a beautiful universe and the capacity to be creative. I owe everything I am and have to God: my body, mind, spirit, my diligence, my talent, and my accomplishments. God has infinite intelligence, and partnering with Him in artistic creativity is the most rewarding thing a human being can do. Above all, God provides hope of being united with Him in heaven through His Son Jesus, Who is God the Son. This hope unleashes the creative spirit and is thus vitally important to the artist.
Secondarily to that, I have adopted some of the philosophy of martial arts, inasmuch as I seek peace and justice, and to have a righteous heart. Taekwondo provides discipline for body and mind. My pursuit of martial arts is firmly rooted in the idea that I have both a desire and a responsibility to stand up for the defenseless. As with everything else, the martial arts ultimately belong to God.
In my art, I especially pursue light and color. I like to let light play in my images, and sometimes I work for a transparent look, or for metallic reflections, and sometimes for fluidity or other qualities. Fractal images appeal to me because of the way in which mathematic precision produces beauty. Photography provides a means for sharing the beauty of the universe with people who cannot go see it for themselves.
