The truths that we keep from others -and very often from ourselves - are the secrets we guard with our lives and only reveal to those we fully trust. At the same time, secrets are the source of our creative powers, our weaknesses, our joys and our sorrows, our pride and our shame.

Art is the expression of the human spirit: how we transform our thoughts, feelings, dreams, and fears. Art is how we make sense of our inner and outer reality- how we create beauty and meaning, how we share our secrets with others, and how we expose our vulnerabilities and inner strengths.

Art is the bridge between the avowable and unavowable secrets – it is the way we reconcile our inner conflicts, the way we heal our wounds, the way we transform our pain into beauty.

Art is the way we reveal more of our true selves, accept ourselves and others, and give something true from ourselves to humanity.
