A wise man once said,

"Beauty is in the eye of the beholder."

My interpretation of this statement goes beyond the attractiveness which we may find within others that draws us to them. I see this affecting my perception of everything. I can find 'beauty' in everything from the most delicate flower, to the most mundane street sign. And it is with this approach to viewing the world around me that I approach my art.
