My name is Kirk.
I've been living the creative life in one form or another for over 20 years. I've been on stage in a rock band and at a desk making graphics. Through all of it, I've nurtured my love for creating with drawing, painting, writing and music. I love sharing the things I've made and the lessons of my creative life experiences, encouraging other artists on their creative journeys and chronicling my own artistic adventures. On my blog, you can find insights and inspiration on photography, art, music, writing, community, creativity and more. I'm proud to be an artist and an encourager to all kinds of creatives. I like paint. I like digital. I like beautiful. I make art.
