Life is Art.
Making art since I was a kid, just like the rest of you. I've had a mission since I was a big kid, since I'm just 5'1 tall, being "big" for me was always an idea. Being "grown-up" didn't look all that shit hot, so I can always remember thinking, Peter Pan had a few good ideas.
so for the past 20 years or so, I didn't really grow up, not all the way any how.
I kept totally letting myself stay kid like, imagination high, not too many hard rules. That is how to let myself kinda play. That is how I adult. Be in flow with inspiration. Being creative in most ways ...most days. As a way of being in the world. I create. I decorate and write. I day dream and Ideate.
...hmm what will I make today!! .
Always from my HeArt!
