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?
