creative growth.

Ladymisssusan:
I have actually had the privilege of meeting Susan in person. She is a fighter. Another woman who knows ALL stories deserve to be told. Her stories about her inner demons inspire and amaze me.

 

Glenda Tkalac
Her pages make me happy. She's never afraid to create something beautiful out of whatever moment she's in. I love that she scrapbooks AND art journals, and she doesn't let "the rules" of either one get in her way.

Lynn Krawczyk Lynn Krawczyk Guest Curator
I'm a firm believer that everything in this life happens for a reason. It's not always easy to see it when you are in the midst of it, particularly if an event is a less than pleasant experience, but when the dust settles and youire able to sit back, you can see the purpose like a blaring neon sign. And then everything makes perfect sense ...

CRESCENDOh: Words of Wisdom
Above all, we are coming to understand that the arts incarnate the creativity of a free people. When the creative impulse cannot flourish, when it cannot freely select its methods and objects, when it is deprived of spontaneity, then society severs the root of art.
