    Art is a form of therapy, probably more costly since I’m a hoarder, but definitely just as effective for me.

    I love the “Finding Your Tribe” stencil. It made me feel happy. I am an only child and somehow it made me feel like a little kid again. But this time, I had a bunch of sisters and we were all playing “Red Rover, Red Rover”! Thanks for the fantasy warm fuzzy!!!

    Art is a way for me to play, to communicate what is inside me, and to share with others Those who look at what I have created may have different opinions on what it “means” or how it makes them feel, but that’s okay. That is part of the creation process, the viewing of and reacting to a piece of art. In fact, it could be said that the art we have created isn’t complete until it reaches out and grabs someone’s attention!
