Why do I make art? It seems a question I cannot answer as I sit here looking at the blank white emptiness of my blog square. I just do is the only answer that comes to mine. I didn't know I was making art for a long time because most of what I make is utilitarian - serves a purpose. My wire crochet jewelry is meant to adorn. But I suppose the simple act of choosing beads, choosing wire, designing a style and incorporating old techniques in a new way is the essence of art marking.
The most truthful answer that comes surging to the surface of my subconscious is I make art because I MUST! It is a simple as that for me.
