“Art-land” is what I call the place I go to when my mind wants more than the mundane. Stepping into this place I am free from manipulation by things less important. I am king of this place and make my own rules as regards to the direction, pace and visual my senses pursue. I guess that’s why I love it here…it’s just me alone with colour and thoughts that come from the heart or mind.
The good and bad in my past create the present work which helps me accept the bad and be grateful for the good. The struggle to succeed outside art-land within the physical world is motivation to continue, but the freedom I’ve had to create and wake every morning to answer only to myself and wonder which direction my art form will take me today is enough pay off for my choice to create….and move outside the mundane.
