"What meaning does doing art have for you?"
Art has been a part of my life since as early as I can
remember. The process of making art is a time of joy
and delight, and has often been very healing for me.
After a severe head injury, I created collages and small
pieces to help in my recovery. I would make a bust and
think it was done. The next day I could see that the
eyes or shoulders were not straight, and I would work on
correcting that. That process helped my brain to heal.
One year during this time, I created a 365-day journal in
clay. Each day I gave myself permission to make anything,
whatever I felt like making, with the only stipulation
being that I spend only 20 minutes. Some days I just
poked holes in clay as a way of soothing my nervous
system. I displayed the whole year in calendar form at
the library. It was very empowering.
Art is my way of connecting with myself and my world,
and expressing the joy and wonder of life.
