I teach, I coach, I create.
I work part-time as an elementary art educator. I have 150 teaching moments a day. I coach gymnastics a few hours a week. I help my gymnasts grow in their confidence and their technique. I make and show my own art. And, I share it with the world. (www. lauramccrackenglass .com).
But, really, as an artist, I am so much more: I am an explorer.
I dig deep in myself; I investigate my truths. My artwork is constructed in layers or through a process that requires familiarity and flow. Life is full of layers. Layers of experiences become the steppingstones that form a path in our personal journeys. My art is my story. I play with ebb and flow as a metaphor for transition. In the past, I have explored the concepts of energy and presence. They re-emerge regularly within my art. Where will my inner compass take me next?
