JANET SELF: Community ArtistArt became my focus in 2004. My work is an abstract exploration... connectivity, flow, energy, rhythm, resonance, space, patterns, chance & intention, universal to singular. I found the act of creating gives courage, insight, freedom, patience and hope. It opens new understanding of the world and I investigate how art making shapes people and the nature of place and community. I founded Flockworks in 2007 as a nonprofit that builds community through creativity.
