"TO THINE OWN SELF BE TRUE..." William Shakespeare (Hamlet Act 1, Scene 3, 78–82). I have always believed that the greatest art is made when the artist remains true to himself.  Art, to me, is a labor of love and a telling of truth. Art is the product of skill and toil that transcends process, inspires thought, and enriches discourse.
