Vision – It reaches beyond the thing that is, into the conception of what can be. Imagination gives you the picture. Vision gives you the impulse to make the picture your own


The very nature of creation is not a performing glory on the outside, it's a painful, difficult search within." ~ Louise Nevelson


I do agree with her statement that creating is a search within. And it does seem like a lot of creative types have been through the fires of life. I think that it is often the experience of hardship- mental, spirital, physical that hones the spirit, attuning it to feel more, to see more, express more. Perhaps. Everyone's story is different. I think that my experiences have made me more sensitive to what is around me.

For me, I create to find my peace. Maybe it is the same.

I find peace in the solitude of nature, and in my art. Not the final product, but in the act of creating. I find that the chatter that goes on in my head, quiets itself. I need that.

How about you?


About
Hello


I'm a Photographer Mixed Media Artist. I like to use imagery to tell a story. It is my belief that art is a universal language that enables us to share our human and spiritual journey as humans on this planet. Like any other type of storytelling if we get it right then we can touch another soul in a very profound way. We can teach, we can learn, grow, laugh, cry and I hope realize how much we are alike and become more tolerant of our differences.

Thank You
Brenda Marks

Completely drawn to your art! You have wonderful creations. Thank you for sharing them.

I bought a couple small pieces at Woolworth Walk in Asheville this weekend so I can continue to enjoy them!

It will be such a shame if people do not recognize your talent. I hope that you would be noted among people who are interested in such things more than ever. Mainly because you have talent which could be channeled in improve the existing methods too. http://www.originalorkopina.com

I just purchased the World With Hope collage and then decided to look you up! I am enthralled with your work! The images are both haunting and quite beautiful. There is so much to see in every piece. I will continue to look to purchase other pieces!
Best,
Lori

I purchased five of your prints in Asheville this past weekend and I'm pretty sure I can say that I'm in love with your work! There are a few on here that I would love to have that weren't available at the time I was shopping, is there anywhere in Georgia that I could go to purchase your art or is there a way I could order specific pieces from you or the website ( I could be overlooking that option)?
