Why the Western Wind? I live in Seattle, Washington, in a neighborhood called Magnolia. In this part of the country, the Western wind brings change. It brings hope too, as we often have cloudy skies in Seattle. Sometimes when I look to the west, I see a part in the clouds. A sliver of hope.
This is how I see my work as an artist. My goals are to find inspiration in the world around me, to create beautiful things, and to educate and inspire others to create beautiful things. Together we can inspire hope and peace in our community through art.
