The Lords creations are my inspiration. Everyday objects appear to me extraordinary as they lend themselves to fuel my creative spirit within. My creative desire can never truly be controlled or satisfied no matter how much art I create. Everywhere I look, from the fresh foliage leaf, to a passing flower, their images are forever stored in my mind. Constant reminders gently revisit my soul, which then flow from my heart, through my hands and onto the creative canvas.
