    “As an artist, I constantly try to look for the visual poetry in the everyday subject matter. I seem most drawn to the human figure, nude or otherwise, and the sensuality of light that caresses the form…I am happiest while creating artwork or teaching in life, and I am blessed by the people
    who inspire me to do both.” – Ken Landon Buck
