(it's) About Me !
I like living life out loud. Right now. Creativity is a way of life for me. It does take courage but I canít seem to resist Ė besides, Iíve found that the benefits outweigh the fear. Art expresses my emotion in a way that leaves me satisfied and connected. Creating art is not an option for me, it is essential.
Since Iím curious by nature, mixed media works best for me. Iím not hemmed in by what to use Ė whether it be canvas and paint, wood and wax, or dried leaves from the yard. I donít consider techniques an obstacle either and I use them all Ė as well as make some up! Outside the box is my motto.
Iím also easily inspired. Sometimes a certain color provokes an idea or a found object begs to be repurposed into a new life. I love trying new things and am not too caught up in whether it is a success or not. Beauty is in the eye of the beholder anyway, right? The journey is what is important to me.
Author and artist Patti Digh says ďIf you are alive, you are creativeĒ. I just love that. So true. I like to share my art so that people can see something in themselves they didnít see before, or maybe, just see it in a different way.
