The freedom to express the feelings, leading a life of personal value, is sometimes complicated and contradictory. In Storybook Expressions, I found a voice within myself that helped ease the insistent search for defining rules and instead let critiques give away to a creativity of imagination. In Storybook Impressions, a simple sense of myth and metaphor captivated endless moments I shared with my son. Further in Storybook Expressions, a restlessness and desire for a meaningful life of dedication to principles I felt inspired me to again design ideas of acceptance into an imperfect world. Through lyrical wording and concept, I hope to reach out to the art of the scribe, a way of blending heart to effort in the pen of the future, a millennial beginning between sentiment of the past, present, and birth of what is to come.
