Only You Can Decide What Is Important To You,
Self -Portrait

Included text:
"I like to see evidence of creation, both artistic and personal. I want to see the process from which an idea stems and a creation materializes. I believe origins are just as important as destination. Everything is a cycle, including ourselves, including our creative process. If we deny or ignore this, then we fail to acknowledge all that we have accomplished. And, if we do not place importance on where we have come from then we have no ability to truly appreciate where we are now and who we will be in the future, both creatively and personally, as our creativity often relies on our past and our experiences of all kinds."
