S. Vote - Artist Statement / Bio
"Each and every day, Life gives us a new chance to see things a little different than what we saw the day before. When we open our eyes, our hearts and minds; the simple little events, everyday circumstances and 'chance' meetings with another, all perfectly converge and gently whisper to us of the Divine, help us to embrace the Beautiful and will, if we can yield, ultimately carve away all that is not Truth.
My hope is that when people see my work they feel as I do; art & beauty are often in the most ordinary of things."
