Art for Mind's Sake

Collage_1
Since I was a little girl, art, creation, and imagination were always second nature. My mother cultivated a strong sense of creativity in me and my dad, the notion that the 'sky's the limit'.

Today, art is my method for exploration. With every creation, I discover the secrets and answers within me... the only way I know how.

As I search for clarity in my work and life, I work with colored smelly markers and large pads of white paper for mind mapping, spontaneous sketches, brainstorm diagrams, and streams of consciousness.

My latest 'discovery session' resulted in an eye-opening collage. I worked on this piece for about a week, adding new images and markings little by little every day.

When I look at this collage, I am reminded that of my favorite quote by Pablo Picasso: "Everything you can imagine is real".  These images represent me, where I've been, where I am, and where I'd like to go.
