What makes a great piece of art?

A simple question, yet one that many artists have struggled with, myself included. For over 20 years, I have explored different styles and mediums, searching for the answer to that very question.  What I have found, is that the answer lies within the person who is viewing it as well as the artist who creates it.  And those two ideals may not overlap.

I want to inspire others with my artwork.

My hope is that the art I create causes people to think and wonder.

Whether it be a matter of color, composition, or concept, I want others to feel the need to stop, look, and really take in what they see, compare that to what they feel, and come away enriched because of it.
