Art Feeds Day

I learned to sew about the same time I learned to write my ABC's. Like most kids, I was a sponge and any kind of project my grandmother put into my hands was soon figured out and shortly after that, filled itself into some sort of magical muscle memory that always comes back when I call it forward.

So when Art Feeds approached me about designing a t-shirt to celebrate Art Feeds Day on September 8th, I immediately thought, "Let's shake this up a bit."

I took my sewing machine off it's high shelf, plugged it in, pulled out my scrap fabric and just started having fun. As soon as the material was underneath the needle, I reverted to the tiny blonde girl with pigtails and big glasses in my grandmother's sewing room. I was creating to create; that is and has obviously always been my definition of fun.

Art Feeds believes all children are artists. This non-profit exists to feed creative development and facilitate emotional expression in children through art and community with  free therapeutic art and creative education programs within schools.
