021: Why Collect Tattoos and Art?

Actually, it’s a bit of a mystery to me.  I haven’t thought of myself as a collector until recently.  Of course, I’m not just a maker and artist, I’ve always collected other people’s art for very meaningful reasons.  Art speaks an emotional language and  it marks major phases for me. The art I collect are tattoos of meaning in my life and time.  Realizing this, has prompted me to reflect; what is it about other people’s art that moves me?  How is that different than creating my own?  And why, now more than ever, am I committed to creating my own art collection and I’m soooo excited about it?

Take a listen.  Why do you collect art?
