Why is Making Art Important to Me?

I’ve always felt making art was something I just had to do. It came out of me easier than any other skill I had or wanted to learn. It always felt natural for me to draw and make things, doing things with my hands. Crafts and models as a child, doing magic tricks as a teenager and inventing new products as a corporate designer. The underlying and connecting thread to all this was my “life long” preoccupation with making things better. It’s important to me because it has always been there with me– making art. I don’t know when I was never curious about looking for something new. I always felt safe to play with new ideas and was always encouraged by my parents. (96 years old today) I was the middle child of 5 boys so I suspect I was an overachiever at getting some attention. “Hey look at me!” I think, deep down, all artists are saying the same thing… “Hey, look at me!”
