Artistic Vision Statement


Dear Kristin,

I hope you find solace in me.

When you create, you are so happy. You are filled with peace and exude joy. I know that time in your apron - with paint on your fingers and glitter in your hair - is time when you and I are the closest. And when we are apart, I miss you.

Please don't forget about me. Remember that at the core of who you are, you are a creative person who makes your world a better place simply because you love being in it. Create with abandon, make art from your heart, and when you want to, share your passion with others.

Trust me. Trust yourself. Hold my hand and I will lead the way . . .

Little You

So very sweet! I love this and think we should all write a letter to our 'little' selves. Remembering to cherish all the wonderful things about ourselves is so very important.
Love this...

That is really adorable, I don't want to sully it with my glitter story, but remind me sometime!

I am grateful to read your vision statement. So much of my claiming my art was giving myself permission to do so.. and then doing it.

Love the photo, too. Brava!

With Love from another Artistic Mom!

Kristin, What great sentiment... seems so much more personal when it is in a letter form. I have yet to do mine, but am getting more and more inspired as I see the statements from all of you creative Artistic Mothers!

Oh Kristin, that is truly wonderful! I love it!

PS: We should always dare to put it out there. Otherwise, we'd just write in a diary with a lock and call it a day. How else will our children grow up to know, appreciate and be inspired by us? Keep it comin'!

Wow. You are amazing! You were able to voice what so many of us creatives need to hear. We all need to remember our younger selves and how free we once were. Thank you.
