The one constant in life is change. Losing one of my precious daughters in 2011 changed my entire perspective, and I only survived the loss with the help of a brilliant therapist and an iceberg of introspection. It’s an ongoing process, sustained by love and genuine gratitude for the gift that is life. In the face of world news today, it can be challenging to maintain a positive and creative attitude, but it’s a choice that I make daily.
Every day, I am grateful for the very people, places, and things that I miss. My beautiful family, my wonderful friends, my delightful clients, and the very nature of human interaction. And for Art, always.
Art is forever a part of who I am as a person, and who we are as people. It’s ingrained in every aspect of our lives, and it’s a powerful means of communication. Whether it’s an oil painting or freshly baked bread, a potter’s bowl or handcrafted cabinets, sparkling jewelry or hand-knitted scarves, it’s all art - even the structures where we live!
