What is DSA?

Somewhere between the idea of a hopeless creative and the words "too sensitive" my desire for this blog was born.

A hopeless creative is not a sad being unable to make some sort of beautiful art, no.  A hopeless creative is one who, in spite of all things, is and must be creative; she cannot separate herself from it.  Some days it is beautiful, somedays it isn't, but the only thing that matters is that she must be creative.  Such is the case with me.

My whole life I have been using creativity as a way to channel my emotions.  I have a lot of them.  It is no wonder that I have chosen professions that also utilize my creative side: costume designer, seamstress, packaging and product designer, and even a professional quilter and knitter.  My recent endeavor into the world of retail making beautiful and extraordinary installation art made me realize, however, that I wasn't enjoying it like I should be.  I had to keep reminding myself that what I was doing was "fun".  I realized my work was so full of deadlines and approval there was no room for self satisfaction.  So I rebelled and took off on my own to be creative for myself.

With that in mind, I wanted a safe haven for all my creative endeavors where my friends and I could create  and share for the simple pleasure that art affords.  Because art and design should be about the process and the catharsis and the FUN.  This blog is my creative therapy.
