"My talk will tell the story of spirit within my work. Whether it be the spirits that inspire me or the spirit I breathe into my work. As a child I spent large amounts of time with my Grandparents and within their homes I learned of things that still haunt me to this day such as family stories, the spirit of nature, loss, and ghosts. As an artist I have strived to evoke my viewers the essence of those things." -tjs
