The Artistic Process (Israel Project)

This is the journey before it begins. A space of documented images and experiences that enlighten, inform, and inspire a methodology that will build by deconstructing.

These are the thoughts that guide me to that place you’ll ask me about. Fragments lived and realized in moments permanently secured. The who, the what, the why, the when, and the how. Background. History. Research.  If you doubt, you can sift through it all. Yourself.
