Artist Statement

Today, as I pause to reflect on the dynamics of the creative process at work in my life, I agree with artist John Soderberg’s statement on talent.  In it he states:  “I feel that my effort is most appreciated by those who comment that I must have worked hard.  I get the feeling that the person has an inkling of the years of learning and of trial and error, the literal blood, sweat, and tears,  and the weighty sacrifices I have made to accomplish whatever I have”.
