THE REPRESENTATION OF ART FOR AN ARTIST
To be an artist, is to live, breath and sleep art. Art in all forms is everywhere, and I see it everywhere I go - whether that be in the external world or inside of me. This type of enmeshment (being one with the creative process) can be hard for non-artists to understand. I cannot separate myself from the ideas that come because they are me, and I must act on them in some way...whether that is to sketch, or take a picture, or just sit quietly alone. The creative process cannot be shut off like a water valve - it is me, and whatever flows from me cannot be stopped for anything.
