For quite some time now I've been receiving emails from friends, family, and fans requesting I put some of my paintings and words into a book. I've hesitated thinking, "Don't you have to be at the end of your career, a true professional, to write a book?" But then, with the encouragement of my mom, I realized that it might be fun to take someone on my journey of becoming. So even though I still feel like I’m at the tip of the iceberg, the start of the road, the first chapters of my journey, I believe it’s in the process that we learn the most. And so I hope this book, a humble offering, will be an inspiration to you in your own process of becoming.
