Dajo - Personal Statement


Dajo

My name is David Gray, Dajo is an invented name. Just too many David Gray's in the world. I have degrees in Mechanical Engineering and Computer Science. I have worked on oil rigs in Texas and high tech in New England, taught skiing and computer science.I have also studied B&W photography, pottery and currently pursuing a printmaking certificate and the New Hampshire Institute of Art. I enjoy printmaking the most because it allows me to draw on both life skills and experiences to produce works to express and share things that have effected my life.

I feel that one's Life is a personal statement while Living is the relationship to everything. There are water mark moments that punctuate the noiseof the ebb and flow of daily living. These may be moments of joy, sorrow, inspiration or something that touches one's soul. It is through art that I choose to share a particular moment, it could be a poem, a picture, or something new. As you explore the world around you, the world within you, expand your knowledge, you should also continue to expand the way you express yourself and communicate.
