The Artist



I am an artist.

I paint my soul

in ways for everyone to see.

Why hide the beauty of what’s within?


it needs to be shared.

It should be admired.

I am an artist.

Each ensemble

expresses an emotion,

a personality.

Every photograph

captures a moment,

a thought,

an action,

a feel.

Each word and every line

represents the vibe of my spirit.

It is my art.

It is all me.

I am an artist,

creating the masterpiece of my mind.

The symphony of my soul.

The novel of my heart.

I’ll share it all with you.


don’t shy away

from my installation.

See the painting.

Take it in.

Meet the artist.

Know me.

I am an artist

and I

am my greatest creation.
