"I believe in living a poetic life, an art full life. Everything we do from the way we raise our children to the way we welcome our friends is part of a large canvas we are creating." -Maya Angelou
Whenever I discover a new artist, regardless of media, I want to know what inspires them to create the art they are sharing with the world. As I have traveled through life, my perspective has changed from year to year, but this quote by author and poet, Maya Angelou, has resonated with me for over twenty years. I discovered this framed quote with fiber artwork in a local gift shop long ago and hung it on my home studio wall along with a few other special pieces I've collected over the years.
The poem serves as a daily reminder to me that no matter what is on my plate each day, I can do my best to lead a creative, art filled lifestyle.
"I believe in leading a poetic life, an art full life. Everything we do from the way we raise our children To the way we welcome our friends Is part of a large canvas we are creating." Maya Angelou
We are all part of a mosaic made up of our family, our friends, our acquaintances, and those myriad people we interact with throughout the day.
In the end, we will leave behind our canvas...the memories that will live on in the hearts and minds of those who follow after us.
