I have always loved making art. It is an inner experience, a form of meditation. When I am making art, I am in a place of not knowing – I begin, and see what unfolds. This is similar to how I live my life – not knowing and being open to the unfolding. Making art is healing – it opens me up, fills me up….it nourishes me and helps me to keep a sense of balance. It helps remind me to notice how things are in this moment. I want to walk through this world with my heart open; fully awake, fully alive… Making art helps me remember this.
