  1. Art is everything…everything is art. You FEEL art, as well as see it. Art different for everyone and you can and do see art…it’s in the way someone dresses, or in the way they move…not just in a “work of art,” meant to hang on a wall or be placed in a book. Everyone recognizes art, it’s just that people don’t always see the same thing. Critics think they know what art is but art is wild and free and not bound by the words and thoughts of any one person. Art just is and it cannot be defined except on a personal level that is connected to the heart.
