“The most powerful question you can ask is why. Intention is the fuel that feeds the cause.”
So why Lucky Stars?
Because deep, deep down my dream has always been to be a professional artist, but I just never thought it was a realistic path.
Because I want to spend my days leaving this earth better than I found it and because I keep forgetting how precious and swift this life is. I’ve been taking tomorrow for granted and I feel my time falling away from under me.
Because my kids look to me to show them what’s possible in this world. Art is my dream and I want to hunt that dream so relentlessly that it is engraved on the spirits of my children. I want them to know that anything is possible if they work hard enough.
Because I want my art to be my compass – ever pointing true north; a discipline, a devotion to a life well-lived.
My prayer for my art is that it:
I hope it shines light on dark days.
I hope it stirs the spirit and calls to the deepest, raw places of the heart.
I hope it lifts chins and squares shoulders.
And I hope it leaves the world brighter and its troubles lighter, even if only a little.
That’s enough for me.
