Our worlds are composed of bits and pieces. These bits and pieces compile who we are. They shape and define us. We categorize, we list, we agree and we dismiss. All of these decisions make and shape us and carry over to our work. Our art is very much a part of our lives whether we realize it or not. Sometimes our art is all we have. Understanding that these bits and pieces make us who we are is one thing but taking them to the next level by being in the moment and understanding our intention with this information is how we fulfill our hearts desire. We become more than the sum of our bits and pieces. Our art is synergized into something more complex but no less compelling than the very experiences that go into shaping these bits and pieces of our lives.
