I was browsing through the site of an amazing artist –Elsa Mora today. I read her bio and discovered she came from less than ideal beginnings. I absolutely love the way she described her determination to create a better life for herself. She did it by using her imagination.
“I was able to imagine a better destiny. I made it happen, day after day, inside my head. I wrote that imagined world down in diaries, I drew it, I painted it, I modeled it in clay and plasticine, I sang it out loud in the bathroom, I day dreamed about it. That imaginary reality became my project, my experiment, my secret love, the only one thing that I could count on because it was all up to me. Everything else failed me but not my imagination.”
Thank you Elsa, for sharing your work with the world.
