I believe everyone has a voice. I know it to be imperative that I use my gift to help benefit others. I am not a political artist in any way. I am a caring individual that considers people to be more important than the almighty buck. The issues I explore are sometimes in the politically published realm. Certainly, my nose is not stuck in a newspaper or on the computer looking up the steamiest newsworthy tragedy. But...when I see an issue that moves me, my desire to create ignites. Working from the heart is the most vitally important and artistic process I have ever learned. This is not taught in any school that I know of. Actually, it stems from my meditation and personal management practice. This topic has moved me so much that I am writing a very special book about this creative process called "Rake the Road, Meditative Movement and the Art of First Thought Creation". This text will be for anyone that has a creative fire inside and wants to explore the gift of the heart and emotions. Come to know what it is to say "My heart told me to do it!"

This is a reaction to the atrocities of unethical treatment of people committed on American soil by the conflict regarding the Dakota Access Pipeline.
