The Lives

Learning about the lives of other artists makes my soul light up. I don’t know what it is. I’m not even sure if it’s every artist but there’s a possibility it could be. It all started with Jackson Pollock in high school and I haven’t recovered since.

So many times hearing about the life of an artist saved me from writers block and even more impactfully from depression. They show up with their life and their thoughts and their skills and let the world know exactly how they feel. It’s refreshing in a world full of people fearful to speak up from social beatings.

Artists that take the social risks we aren’t willing to take really just turn me inside out in the best way. The boldness they show stepping into the unknown is inspiring and frankly it plain ole turns me on.

If you’re interested here’s a post about an artist I truly admire Jan Van Eyck

Jayne is a writer. On her free time she likes to be with her family hiking outdoors and traveling. New England is her home and place of birth. When asked what she wants to teach the world she replied, "Don't stop searching. Too many times, in my old life, I put my search aside for more 'important matters.' I didn't realize the thing I was searching for held what was most important; my soul purpose." Jayne works daily on improving her craft and at times can get down on herself, but her favorite morning mantra is "It's a new day." and that's what she strives to start with.
