Inspiration and Personal Questions

It continually inspires me to see the work of other female artists, no matter the medium or message,
because I tell myself, "If she can find her true path and calling in life, so can I,"
....and furthermore, so can you!

Below are links to the work of five women who have all been Guggenheim fellows
(just as Erika Blumenfeld, the light photographer featured yesterday).
Visit their sites, look at what incredible contributions women are making in the arts, then ask yourself,
"What am I passionate about? If there were no obstacles, what would I create?"
Then, begin believing in your dreams.

  2. Phoebe Gloeckner < , Artist, Ann Arbor, Michigan; Assistant Professor, University of Michigan School of Art and Design < : A graphic narrative.

So...what do you dream of creating today?
