Art has inspired such a huge portion of my life. When I was a kid my mother enrolled me in art class and I fell in love with painting it made me feel powerful and in control. Art gave me a space to express myself and be vulnerable. I began relating that feeling to not only art in general but the process of creating . Art to me is an opportunity for vulnerable expression. I can be angry, vulnerable, even silly. I can be apologetically myself which is somewhat of a personal goal for myself. I want to keep that in mind not only as I renovate my bedroom, but also as I continue to write. I want both my home and my writing to place self expression.
