THE MUSEUM OF LIGHT: Artists as Alchemists: Just as an alchemist transforms led into gold, do you feel that being an artist relates to that of being an alchemist? Do you view the artist journey and your creative expression, as alchemy?

MAJOR. : It's amazing what the creative process produces when heart & passion are the nucleus. I honestly believe I (we) have been created to manifest great works in the earth for the betterment of humanity. Because excellence is my untethered bar of ethic, I am often gratified by the GOLD produced as a result.

THE MUSEUM OF LIGHT: The Evidence of the Journey: Artists are often labeled as "stars.” Just as a star radiates light and the planets then reflect this light, do you see your work as an artist like that of a star? Is this "light" that stars radiate merely the evidence of this journey of becoming a star/learning to radiate light?

MAJOR. :  To be true to one's self is the start of illumination. Such transparency has a way of posturing you in a manner that draws the eyes and interest of many. Truth & Greatness reveal a shine unlike any other. I am MAJOR. and therefore, I shine.

THE MUSEUM OF LIGHT: The Courage to Create: When an artist is not "creating" it is often labeled a "creative block." How do you navigate this space, how do you find the creative spark in the dark, and does it require courage to create from this unknown space? Describe this process.

MAJOR. :  BEING STILL generally remedies my creative rut. In the stillness I begin to take in the moment for all it is - allowing creation to speak to me however it may. The wind speaks just a sure as the birds release their singing. From there I receive the inspiration to carry on and build accordingly. Usually, the outcome is among my best work.
