I first read this quote while I was in high school and it still reflects how I feel about creativity. Creativity is important to me: in my art work and in my ability to meet life's challenges. As I approach the "half-century" mark, both my work and my approach to life are freer and more creative.This self-portrait reflects the self-confidence I feel and the richness of my life. I am who I am today because of the encounters and experiences I've been fortunate to have.
