Photographing everywhere there is love and light | Detroit | Ann Arbor | Chicago & Worldwide


I’ve been bombarded lately (wonderfully so) by links and people and information and videos and sites all talking about creativity, all of them agreeing that it is the only hope for our future, that whether someone agrees that art and learning and creativity is important is irrelevant, what is is, the words revolution and change are buzzing around in all walks of life and it seems to be stemming from the realization that the old ways aren’t working on so many levels.

That’s scary for people who like rules, and order and grades :) I love grades, I’ve used grading systems in my own life for years. but that’s a comfort zone, not a faith. Interesting times ahead.. hopefully.
One of the links that has come to me half a dozen times in the last few days from a myriad of sources is a place called Ted Ideas worth spreading. It’s brilliant thinkers, clever thinkers, interesting thinkers all kinds of people talking about ideas and art and creativity and a myriad (word of the day) other things.. I thought if it’s coming at me from so many places, well maybe this is one thing I’m supposed to share.

Have you already been there, what do you think, see anything interesting, share the specific link in the comments :)

I still keep a blog, it's consistently regularly updated but not often. I like it because I can go back almost 10 years and see how I've grown and changed as an artist and how my studio has changed along with me.
