Recently, I have been heavily invested in transitioning to becoming a full time practicing artist. Spending a week at Baldwin provided clarity, rest, and power toward my commitment to my artistry. I came into the space to deepen my understanding of process over product. I apply this concept within my art therapy practice when working with clients but noticed the disconnect within my personal work. The symbolism was rich and had I not had the chance to slow down...I might have missed it all. The conversation with Jacqueline was so validating, my time in Harlem was affirming, and the opportunity to drink water from a well was purely spiritual. I honestly cannot fully express how grateful I am for this opportunity. Thanks for getting me one step closer to becoming a full time practicing artist.
