Congratulations Trevor! I love your artwork and your story. I am happy to hear you have found a wonderful outlet for your emotions. You have a great talent there, so keep up the fantastic work and keep getting to museums when you can. I was recently fortunate enough to go to the Van Gogh Museum and it is interesting to see how an artist's work can change and grow in a short period of time. Have you thought of creating a Facebook page for your artwork and poetry so you have a place where others can see your latest creations with social media? I would definitely "Like" your page if you have one! All the best to you and your family!

Lovely story and from one artist to another, "Keep Creating and Keep the Passion, Trevor!"

Art is an Expression of what is inside, Creating Art is an Expression of Love and Sharing who we are ~ Extending ourselves outside of our physical bodies. Art is the Purest form of our True Selves.

I look forward to seeing you Trevor, through your work ~ Keep reaching for the Stars!
