Artist Mission Statement

To use my talent, resources, and art
To create opportunity and play my part

I am joyful, I am childlike, I am goofy, I am tight
I am hopeful, I am shameful, I am guilty, I am blameful
I am curious, I am listening, I am talking, I am glistening
I am found, I am wandering, I am firm, I am floundering
I am demanding, I am pissed, I am jealous, I am kissed
I am clinical, I am exact, I am foolish, I am intact
I am charming, I am creepy, I am a saint, I am sneaky
I am distant, I am cuddly, I am wanting, I am bubbly
I am annoyed, I am underrated, I am pleading, I am irritated
I am a master, I am a fool, I am a man, I am a tool
I am lonely, I am content, I am worried, I am spent
I am done, I am starting, I am fun, I am parting
I am impatient, I am responsible, I am understanding, I am intolerable
I am challenging, I am lazy, I am quick, I am hazy
I am honest, I am pleasing, I am insecure, I am teasing
I am calm, I am ticklish, I am panicked, I am devilish
I am nourishing, I am enabling, I am weak, I am unwavering
I am restless, I am bored, I am sleepy I am floored
I am knowledge, I am nimble, I am trustworthy, I am swindled
I am horny, I am warm, I am sexy, I am torn
I am thinking, I am believing, I am questioning, I am seeking
I am resigning, I am engaged, I am riled, I am caged
I am picky, I am afraid, I am nervous, I am okay
I am toying, I am rejecting, I am running, I am protecting
I am fortunate, I am grateful, I am learning, I am faithful
