I have always had a creative spirit and it is my belief that all humans are gifted with the same creative spirit. We prove this in our every day lives whether we are solving a simple problem or creating a great work of art. As a child, I enjoyed are and loved to make things. I was in awe of someone who could put pencil to paper and draw from their mind's eye and became very frustrated when I could not do the same. Forty years later, I discovered that creativity comes in many forms and being able to draw is not the only way to be an artist. I have learned to use my talents and resources available to me to create something unique. Creativity dos not always involve a new idea. AS a child, my grandmother would crochet each grandchild a new sweater at Christmastime. This was not a new idea, but it was a unique creation for each of us who received them. She used the resources of her time, her tools, her yarn and her talent...she was an artist!
Anytime someone has a new idea, writes a book, paints a picture, builds a website, solves a problem, they have used their creativity.
Over the years, I have enjoyed being creative through the mediums of fiber art, sewing, soap making, teaching video production and computer programming and there is so much more to explore.
