I create because:

“I create art to better understand the person I want to become.”
~ Allison S. Adams (2017)

I describe myself as:

Just an ordinary, artistic, cordial introvert who happens to be methodically chaotic.
I can do all things through Christ, who strengthens me. Phil 4:13

I believe that

“No day should be too ordinary to celebrate.” ~Allison S. Adams (2012)
and that,
“Every moment should be worthy of a capture.” ~ Allison S. Adams (2013)

My personal quotes:

“It’s about taking broken pieces, and putting them together to tell a story.” ~Allison S. Adams (2014)

“The resultant is bigger than the sum of the components put together.” ~ Allison S. Adams (2006)

My favourite art quote:

“Art is not a mirror to reflect reality, but a hammer with which to shape it.”
~ Bertolt Brecht
