Connecting Generations with Art

The other day I was pondering the large and nebulous question, ‘What is art?’ and quickly found that I don’t much care – not in the general sense, anyway. 

two children no frame What I do care about is, ‘what does my art mean to me?’ and even more so, ‘can I create meaningful connections with others through my art?’.  Obviously, I hope the answer to the latter is a resounding, YES!

One of the things that I love about using the Etch A Sketch (a multigenerational toy) as my medium is that most people have played with one and as a result of their experience with it they seem to have a special relationship with the art.  I hope that adding this blog to my website is going to help me find and connect with kindred spirits.  Writing has always been an essential tool for me not just in my art but in life, the ultimate creative process!!
