The Artist Monk
12387 Maple Ridge Rd Medina NY 14103
Bio: "Art is not a pastime but a priesthood" Jean Cocteau. An artist monk is a person whose monastery is their art. Their journey is a spiritual one based on discipline, intuition and creativity. One is only truly whole when they live according to their nature. As Thoreau said, "If a plant cannot live according to it's nature, it dies, as so a man." A person with a strong creative nature needs to create. Not because it makes money but because it makes them whole, alive...true to their spirit. There is one thing every true artist desires above all else. Freedom. The freedom to create their art on their own terms. I have chosen this path of freedom. I paint and draw what I want…I go where the muse takes me....and then I share it.
