    Episode 114: The Art Story Through My Story

    Episode 114: The Art Story Through My Story

    Each month I dedicate one episode of an excerpt of a book I am writing. Writing is the vehicle I want to use; to bring into my reader the ways art has transported me and shaped me into the woman I want to be, and into the life I want to live. My hope is for you to be open to the ways art can shape and bring meaning to your life.
    .
    The excerpt I highlight is from the chapter "Louise Nevelson: Head Wraps and Scarves."
