When I used to think of creating and what it meant, I limited myself to believing I had to make something with my hands. This was before I became an artist. Creating for me now means something different. It's a word that cannot be defined by one action. Almost every decision takes some creating because you put some of your being into that choice. Creating is expressing. 

When I paint, it is the one place I feel I can truly open myself up and not hold back. Painting is not just freeing; it is draining, yet rewarding. I go into the creative process with an open mind and heart. I completely surrender to creating and allow myself to be evolved. I may not always visually appreciate what comes out onto the canvas, but I love what it has allowed me to say.
