As an artist, I wish to support the creativity of others. By honoring the work of my friends and colleagues, I not only get to share them with you, but I am able to thank them for their inspiration and role in making the world a better and more creative place to live in.

I hope you will enjoy the diversity of art and resources that will be showcased at The Nature of Things.
