My Artist Statement
Creatively, created by the CREATOR to create inspirational and motivational messages through the artful skill of writing, web design, interactive media, image manipulation, audio, videos and music; paper and a pen are to me what a canvas with paints, oils and chalk is to Picasso.
Purpose of My Creative Works
At heart I am an encourager, I love helping people. Many people are discouraged, downtrodden and like a race car running out of gas has to pull in for a pit stop to refill, to be revived, to be rejuvenated and get back in the race, symbolically many people are like that racing car. My creative works are the pit stop, the gas provided for them to be refilled, to be restored, to be rejuvenated, to be encouraged and motivated to stay in and complete the race.
I’ve always heard the phrase that the race isn’t give to the swift but to those that endure to the end and eloquently speaking somewhere in the middle of training and competing, life’s circumstances get up in people’s faces to distract them from finishing the race, many lose hope and they need to be encouraged, they need to be reminded that they have what it takes and that they can make it.
Humbly speaking, that’s the purpose of my artwork, to declare that “Hope Is On The Horizon” by sharing messages of hope through web design and interactive media.
My art is important to me because it’s not about me; it’s about serving and becoming the bridge to help others make it to the other side and accomplish their goals and be all that they can be!
WHAT MOTIVATES ME TO ACHIEVE MY BEST?
First and foremost is my relationship with God, my children and those that have had a positive effect on my life.
Believing in myself, my goals, my vision, and working hard, even when it hurts. Seeing opportunities in every situation, both good and bad.
Being respectful and professional at all times.
Being teachable and not unreachable.
I am very thankful for the hardships that I have survived and for the lessons that I have learned because they have made me a much better and stronger person.
The fact that I am alive is enough to give God my best because God has always given me His best.
As I give my best, I am giving back what God gave unto me and His love ultimately is my motivation! i

And now the LORD says— he who formed me in the womb to be his servant to bring Jacob back to him and gather Israel to himself, for I am honored in the eyes of the LORD and my God has been my strength, Isaiah 49:1-5
My Personal Mission Statement
Is To Bring Good News To Those That Suffer
For the Spirit of the Lord God is upon me; because the Lord hath anointed me to preach good tidings unto the meek; he hath sent me to bind up the brokenhearted, to proclaim liberty to the captives, and the opening of the prison to them that are bound.
To be a refuge, a unique place, a safe place where those that have lost their identity and purpose in life can come to be restored and realize their true potential in Christ.
To be an inspirational, educational, healing and filling station for those that are lost,
those that are hurting, those that are broken and looking for love in all the wrong places.
To help develop and cultivate the gifts, skills and talents of those desiring to raise their standard of living by understanding their purpose and strategically executing their vision and dreams through the artful skill of teaching, preaching and motivational speaking.
To love, honor and respect God, myself and those that I come in contact with,
Esteeming others higher than myself.
To walk in integrity and humble serve my fellow man by lending a helping hand.

Listen to me, you islands; hear this, you distant nations: Before I was born the LORD called me; from my birth he has made mention of my name.
He made my mouth like a sharpened sword, in the shadow of his hand he hid me; he made me into a polished arrow and concealed me in his quiver.
He said to me, "You are my servant, Israel, in whom I will display my splendor." But I said, "I have labored to no purpose; I have spent my strength in vain and for nothing.
Yet what is due me is in the LORD's hand, and my reward is with my God."
John 3:16 (New International Version)
For God so loved the world that he gave his one and only Son, that whoever believes in him shall not perish but have eternal life.
