I enjoy the process of imagining and creating what ever is in my head; whether that is visual arts, music, acting, writing or whatever. I believe that despite an artist's technical proficiency, unless they are communicating through their heart, they cannot touch the heart of their audience. So, it is the heart that makes the music. It was important that I repaired, restrung and tuned the violin after I painted it. I wanted it to be ready for someone who could make their heart come out of it.
