to be an artist.

"to be an artist means: not to reckon and count; to ripen like the tree which does not force its sap and stands confident in the storms of spring without fear lest no summer might come after. It does come. But it comes only to the patient ones, who are there as if eternity lay in front of them, so unconcernedly still and far."

- Ranier Maria Rilke

I AM SOOOOO inlove with your art! I wish I had all the money in the world I would fly you to NY for my engagement and wedding photos and whatever else I might need a photo for. I love the dark candid almost sureal emotion of your work. LOVE IT. I hope you don't mind but I would love to add you to my favorite bloggers.
