Love of Art

Art is a personal journey and speaks to each one of us differently.  Art  can evoke emotions, can remind of us places we have been or places we would like to be. Art can be seen,  felt or interpreted. It is always in the eye of the beholder! Often the Artist is captivated by a moment in time she has witnessed and wants to commit it to permanence.
