I never thought I would be the type of person that could and would move as often as I do. Picking my roots up, packing my condensed life away in my jetta VW station wagon, leaving my friends behind, and driving across the country to a whole new place is not an easy thing for a person like me to do. I enjoy my comfortable surroundings and having my regular coffee shops and bars to go to. I like consistency and the unchanged. Yet, with my homebody mind frame, I have moved 4 times in the past 4 years. Each move became easier and easier as I developed an understanding of the process I would go through. I became aware of why these moves were so important to me.
These shifts in my life have affected my work. The changes may not have been very obvious ones. Yet, there's something intriguing for me in that transformation. I'm interested in what triggered me in those environments to allow my work to change and to grow into what it needed to be.
