Artists serve. Artists serve to bring balance to the community. We keep the peace.

We point towards where we see the light.

We assist in connecting the fragments. The community, these days needs this.

Art Touches

We move others. We touch others…..through our art.  The Love crystallized in our art,  in whatever form it takes…. touches others.


To transform in mysterious, deep visceral ways.




Our artist reflections, really are not ‘ours’ alone.

They are meant as smoke signals, if you will;  messages to the broader community.

Artists are also scouts.

We see things from afar and we make the long hard journey to go there. Alone.  With only our own faith, courage and wisdom to guide us.

And then we bring you back those ideas,  those dreams, visions we discovered.




In my mind,  that is Love.


Love serves.

Love touches.

Valor and Love Iris,



We Artists do all those things.


Next time someone offhandedly says,  art is not a real job, nor a valid valued part of the community….. remember these things.


We are absolutely just as necessary  to the community as the other professions.

Who else will do what we do?
