ONE OF MANíS CONTRIBUTIONS TO PERFECTION IS IN THE FORM OF ART.
IT IS THE PRODUCT OF IMAGINATION, INSPIRATION, TALENT, AND THE DILIGENCE TO PRODUCE A WORTHY PROJECT.
WHETHER IT BE ART, IN ITS MOST TRADITIONAL FORMS: PAINTING, SCULPTING, MUSIC, DRAWING, DANCING, ACTING, AND WRITING,
OR ART IN A LESS TRADITIONAL FORM, IT IS AN INSPIRATIONAL GIFT THAT SATISFIES MAN'S DESIRE TO DESIGN AND CREATE.
WITHIN THIS SECTION I AM GOING TO INTRODUCE, SOME VERY SPECIAL PEOPLE.
PEOPLE WHO HAVE DEMONSTRATED THAT THEY POSSESS THAT GOD GIVEN GOODNESS, INSPIRATION, AND TALENT, .
MULTI-FACETTED AND MULTI-TALENTED PEOPLE, THAT I WOULD LIKE FOR YOU TO GET TO KNOW.
THOSE PEOPLE WHOSE TALENTS I WISH FOR YOU TO BECOME FAMILIAR.
INCLUDED, ARE BIOGRAPHIES, SHORT INTRODUCTIONS, AND EXAMPLES OF THEIR WORK. ALSO INCLUDED, ARE E-MAIL ADDRESSES AND HYPERLINKS TO SOME OF THEIR WEBSITES... EACH, MAY ALSO BE CONTACTED THROUGH THIS SITE.

RAVEN STANDS ALONE
Raven purchased his first guitar when he was 12 years old. He promptly broke it and started playing cornet and trumpet in the school marching band.
At 16 he played French horn for a semester then gave it up till he was 30.
At the age of 30 he bought a silver flute from a friend and found the love of his musical life.
At that time he also purchased a guitar so that he could sing and play music at the same time.
