Now that the kilns are loaded for my Waterworks exhibit, the tiles are being compressed for the next round of carving. There will be no breaks this semester and very little sleep. I welcome the challenge. The next exhibit will be called Southern Sampler, a group show of southern artists brought to SUNY Brockport, New York. In order to prepare for this exhibit, a bunch of my summer southern travels were utilized for image-making research. Thanks to Emily Tuttle for taking me on an art historian's tour of plantations and important areas of Charleston and Pawleys Island. I've finished one Charleston and Pawleys Island disks but have plenty of imagery for more tiles. The more I travel the states, the more I realize that local travel is just as influential as global travel.

I enjoy doing creative stuff way back when I was a kid. I actually love painting, capturing different places and happenings, drawing, calligraphy writing and making other artworks. If you have a passion for this matter, you will surely enjoy your life. As I grew older, I now love traveling. But for some reasons, my heart always tell me to do some artworks again. Without any hesitation, I do some creative stuff while traveling, in that sense, I enjoy both of my passion for arts and for travel.
Best of Luck

Listen to your heart. Take the time to do what it is telling you. Enjoy the process letting it enhance your experiences. Live life with no regrets. Your art and travels are what memories are made of, not wishing you could have. :)
