Telling your story through your art

Put your own story into your art. We want to see the deeply personal, vulnerable side of life. This is the face we do not show, or see. Artistic expression gives us permission to explore this.

The mask of your art will protect you, and through expressing you may also find some healing. You will also be brave enough to share something intimate. This is real risk taking, and will be both transformative and admired.

What have you learned? What were the most painful lessons? In which moments were you completely torn between two things? Where were the epiphanies, the extreme joys? What was the turmoil before the release?

So next time you are searching for artistic subject matter, try looking to your own life.
