What does tolerance have to do with art?
For me, a lack of tolerance blocks joy and imagination. When my joy and imagination are blocked I stop creating art.
In addition, the more I let go of past hurt and disappointment, the freer I become to believe that my fondest dreams are achievable.
When I embrace, and appreciate the diversity around me, I expand from the inside out; becoming more and more fearless in my desire to express my authentic self. I’ve noticed a sweet bonus: I’m stronger and I’m learning that how others judge me is none of my business.
