The Arts Series
Conversations with an Artistic Edge

The exploration of art is quite challenging yet very rewarding - art is a form of expression with a goal to stimulate the senses.  I've often pondered the many ways an artistic concept can form a unique connection between artist and observer through the use of sight and sound.  Art encompasses many forms including the bending and welding of metal, inspired brushstrokes, the deviation of light sources, spontaneous music notation or an engineer's skills in the studio.

An artist ultimately expresses a thought that's designed to connect their work and the spectator via sensory means.  During the next few years this series will feature people from various artistic careers sharing their thoughts and experiences through an interview format of conversation.  I think you'll find this series inspiring and informative - perhaps even enlightening.  Check back every few months for new additions to this Website.
