Very rarely is the life of a creative solely focused on creating. Perhaps that is the idealistic perception of an artist, but realistically the nature of "perfecting your craft" extends itself to more than just artistic abilities. Instead, the nature of the creative pursuit requires a constant, fluid work ethic in not only that, but in maintaining balance and care between the important elements in life to survive, such as finances, relationships, personal health, etc. The most innovative question proposes how one is able to integrate abstract concepts of art with the mundane aspects of life. No matter who you are, you likely are subject to circumstances equal to your peers: paying bills, going to work, going to school, waiting in line at the grocery store, performing self-care, etc. However, the beauty hidden within these mundane acts is the ability to connect with others at a humane level, riddled with humility, and also personalizing each experience-- piecing together mundane moments and creating a mosaic arch of colors that only you can see. None of us see the world alike, and so a lifetime of work for the artist remains: how does a single person with only their bare hands strip a world naked of it's dimensions and hues in order to recreate another world that no one knows exists?
