For me, the arts, and my first love writing, are disciplines through which we express ourselves. We learn a craft to focus our thinking and imagination and create a medium where we invite our audience to meet us. So the arts, and more specifically, writing, are disciplined thinking and imaginative expressions through craft.
But even more, the arts and writing must be grounded in eternal truth that acknowledges God, his relationship with creation, and our response to His work. My approach is a Judeo-Christian one, and my faith expressed through my art hopefully reflects my relationship with Jesus. But I welcome dialogue with any person of any faith, or non-faith.
If you are open to consider these ideas, then I have much to share and learn from you.
