Statement:

As an accomplished artist in many mediums, I love every piece of art I produce, whether it is a new song, a new story, or a new dream catcher. I am grateful for the choice to leave corporate America to pursue the arts. Since 1997, I’ve done some incredible projects as well as earned a living through all my art forms.

One of the most important aspects of being creative for me is meditation. Through this action of being still, you are allowing the energy to flow from other realms from your spirit helpers, and your Creator. When I receive inspiration, I will begin a new project. One of the art mediums I do to keep the energy flow moving, is picking up a dream catcher and start to weave. It is very common for me to pick up a dream catcher for a while, then turn to my guitar to rehearse or just play.

My materials for the dream catchers are in the “hunt” for unique stones, crystal beads, centerpieces and leather. I try to find different things to make each one unique. As a writer of stories and music, I just get out of the way, and allow what comes through. Usually, I’m amazed at what I created.
