Creativity is imbedded into the core of who I am. For as long I can remember, I’ve felt the need for creative expression. For a large portion of my life, it has been words that helped me express myself artistically. In another season, I explored photography and the things my eyes were drawn to. In this season, I am diving deep into visual arts and enjoying the process of what it is helping me uncover about myself.
