This was my favorite Dare to Create Challenge to date! It really made me dig deep and get out of my creative mojo funk. Plus it was fun to learn more about an artist I greatly admire. Take it away Andy…..
My inspiration came from Israeli born artist Dganit Blechner, I’m sure many of you would not have heard of her but you can check her work out here http://www.dganit-blechner.com/
