Hello all, and welcome to my blog. I have kept a journal for many years as a way to clear my thoughts and to maintain balance in my emotions. That writing is for me. The writing included in this blog will be for me AND you, the reader. I'd like to focus more on issues related to art, aesthetics, and creativity. As an artist, art is a part of my existence, woven into every aspect of my daily life. This blog will reflect upon living creatively, both personally and professionally. For my first post, I'd like to share a guest blog post I wrote for the Oklahoma Visual Arts Coalition last year Here's the link: http://ovac-ok.org/uncategorized/julie-clark-unearths-soul-city/. Thanks for reading, and enjoy!
