Hello, and Welcome!
I have found nothing out there that compares to the thrill of creating and experiencing Art. Art in every form: writing, painting, music, theater; all in the end expressions of life. The joys, the agonies, the frustrations. However abstract, transcendental, bizarre, Art draws from life; a vision, a thought, an epiphany sparked by what is going on around us. It challenges boundaries, explores new ideas and new ways to communicate them, and, finally, has the power to reach and connect with people of all different cultures and beliefs.
To share two of my favorite quotes on the topic: about Art, Pablo Picasso once said: “A work of art must make a man react, feel strongly, start creating too, if only in his imagination. He must be seized by the throat and shaken up; he has to be made aware of the world he’s living in and for that he must first be jolted out of it.” Thank you, Maestro. That says it all.
And my favorite quote about writing is one from Carl Sagan: “Writing is perhaps the greatest of human inventions, binding together people who never knew each other, citizens of distant epochs. Books break the shackles of time. A book is proof that humans are capable of working magic.” YES!!
All my life I have been passionate about both Writing and Art and am now happily writing, and creating Art in the form of both Graphic Design as well as personal Art. My first novel, Ink – Beneath the Stain, came out in July 2016, for which I designed my own cover.
This inspired me to offer cover design to writers at a very reasonable price, since I’m trying to get my name out there! In my career as a Graphic Designer I have designed posters, CD covers, brochures, and many other things which have equipped me with the skills necessary to do book covers. Visit my COVER DESIGNS page and my OTHER DESIGNS pages to see samples of my work! I am working on a PRICING and SPECIAL OFFERS page and hope to have it up soon!
My second novel, Owl Manor, the Dawning, a Gothic Romantic Suspense novel, comes out on October 15, 2018.
Thanks for coming and I hope you find something that touches you on my pages!
