Mary Ann Wakeley- Art and Meaning

L'art de la Seduction 18"x18" Mixed media on birch plywood, 2009

What meaning does doing art have for you?

When I am making art, I am experiencing the highest form
of communication with myself.....I am light and free, much
the way I feel when running with my favorite music on a clear
day and everything just flows..no obstacles, just pure good
feeling.....it is flying without wings...pure bliss. Making art
means being free to be who I am. It is the self created world
of personal meaning that connects me to everything and everyone
