I would like to reveal. Knowledge elevates. Understanding endures.

 

I want to draw. Through beauty or eloquence I will bring them in.

 

I want my work to stay with you. If it haunts you, I have succeeded.

 

I would like to be concise, clever, and well spoken. The subtle metaphor reaches.

 

I will be significant. To an audience not always interested, I will persuade.

 

I would like to confront. If you are the same as when you arrived, I have failed.

 

I want to climb fences. Speak across generations, personalities, and cultures.

 

I am an educator. This is my philosophy of education.

 

I am an artist. This is my artist statement.
