Although I enjoyed art as a child, it wasn’t until I started to long for a chance to bring my inner visions into life that I really began to explore through my art. I used art as a bridge between my unconscious, mostly hidden self and my conscious, thinking self, deepening and growing as I allowed myself the freedom to express whatever needed to come forth. This journey of self-exploration through art woke me to the fact that others, too, may yearn to connect with their creativity in an accepting environment where discovery and searching without criticism was the norm; where creativity was recognized as a wholly human trait that needed nurturing and expression within a community of like-minded adventurers. This is the essence of The Creative Edge, and the reason I support and lead this extraordinary non-profit.
