Blog: Spoke in the Wheel

As artists we are part of the whole. We are spokes in the wheel on a bicycle. 

The wheel needs the spokes, the bike needs the wheel. Without the bicycle we cannot ride the bike – we will never feel the freedom of the wind in our hair.

How the whole survives depends on every part – including the spokes. I know from my own experience - I am one of those spokes. With each work, I seek a creation that is one in a million. As a part of the bicycle I add to the beauty of the ride.
