Anxiety chased away the creativity. Avoidance set in.

Anything resembling a creative life was lost.

The longing never left, it kept calling.

Finally the call was answered.

The stitches are helping, they are an anchor, a vessel, a path.

After eight years of Art school and avoiding creative thoughts the majority of the time, a life of creating art seemed terrifying. I was aware of behaviours and attitudes to art as an outline only, I had no way to ascertain the purposes of art in my own life. Not only did I have no clue as to figuring out a way to find answers, I had no firm grasp as to the questions that needed to be asked. But that is changing. 

I know this is not what an 'About' page is usually about, but I am learning.
