Uta Mooney- Art and Meaning

What is the meaning of doing art for you?

My name is Uta Mooney and I live in Adelaide, South
Australia. I found your question very interesting and
thought about it for quite a few days.
Why do I show
up
in the studio day after day? The answer is very
simple. I need to show up in the studio day after day
the same way as I need to breathe. Without it I would
cease to exist. It's a way I reach my deep self. Turning
up at the easel transports me to a place where I can
truly be me...no, it's more than that. It's where I can
simply be.
