Creating – devoting one’s energy to a process – is a motivating and inspiring act. It consumes me. It is the means AND the end. It is kinetic. Each work lends itself to the next, just as each series borrows ideas and techniques from the last. The material shapes me as much as I shape it.
At the end of the day the return is a sense of pride and accomplishment. Within success and failure, I learn the value of self understanding and aim to improve on all aspects of my life.
