When we think of art, often grand thoughts come to mind...a master piece, genius, or some other big romantic notion of what art "should" be. However, art is and often something much more tangible and, thankfully, reachable. Art is an attempt to express some form of communication.
I am an artist who creates in different medias...collage, watercolor, fabric, paper mache and digital art. I enjoy taking ideas and making them real. It makes me feel a bit like the fairy from The Velveteen Rabbit.
“Real isn't how you are made,' said the Skin Horse. 'It's a thing that happens to you. When a child loves you for a long, long time, not just to play with, but REALLY loves you, then you become Real.'
"You were Real to the Boy," the Fairy said, "because he loved you. Now you shall be Real to every one."
