While I’m creating a piece of art I get lost in the process and hours become minutes, that's true bliss. Art in any medium creates a feeling, and that’s the goal to invoke feeling! It’s a real joy when someone appreciates a piece of art work and wants to give it a home. It's my hope to keep the arts alive--Support your local ARTS!
FLOR500 is a participatory art, nature, and history project that marks the importance of the moment when the history of Florida changed forever and gives a glimpse of what its landscape was like 500 years ago. Developed by Xavier Cortada, director and artist-in-residence of FIU’s College of Architecture + The Arts’ Office of Engaged Creativity, the project commemorates Florida’s quincentenary in 2013.
