I don't know about all of you, but this frigid gray weather is beginning to drag me down a bit. I found this inspiring video about artist Kal Barteski, and thought I'd share it here. Her determination to follow her dream has sustained her through grerat adversity, and I felt a keen sense of kinship with her. In her story, I have found encouragement; I hope you will, too.
I've also been greatly inspired by artist/blogger Sophie Munns' work with seed biodiversity. Like Kal, she uses her work to promote a cause she feels deeply about.
Kal and Sophie are superlative examples of how it's possible to put art to work in service to the greater good, and to remain true to ourselves while making art.
