"Every human life has their seeds, their birth, their family history and cultures, and their own experiences.  In your studio, it should be yourself that you are seeking. We are all thickly layered and fragile. Heredity, culture, and experiences all combine to make each one of us unique and different from each other.”     Donna Watson
