As romantic it sounds, I can honestly say that I've been a dedicated artist since I was about 7 years old. Sounds crazy? Ask my family and friends, I was creating bodies of work with construction paper and crayons and hanging them hallways. I always knew that being an artist was what I was wanted to do.
I read a quote once, "I believe with all my heart in the power of art to save lives". I immediately questioned if I believed that. Could a drawing or a piece of art really save someones life? I considered the facts: art examines reality, art entertains people, art educates, art explores, it's provocative, art is unique, it criticizes and inspires, art is therapeutic, art is human. I couldn't imagine my life without these experiences. It became obvious to me...yes...I did believe in the power of art to save lives, or at the very least enrich them...
