Artist’s Quote

Those who once felt alienation early on tend to find their chosen family later.


We hear people talking about it all the time. We watch it build or burn out.


The first time when we felt a part of, it was a moment of acceptance…

Luminary’s Quote

I have no technique, I’ve never taken an art lesson. – Tomata Du Plenty
