Brave New World by Addison Likins
My goal is to create a compelling and exciting exhibition..... include artistic sensibility, personal vision, execution, soulfulness and insightfulness. Most important is the power of the image and its emotional impact, i.e., a work of art that makes you think or feel. ~ Claude Elliott
