The Miracle of Artistic Vision

Possessing the gifts of vision, expression and sensitivity, artists encourage, uplift and inspire others to see differently. Our creativity is an invitation to overcome self-doubt and manifest our inner visions. Leonardo da Vinci lived by the motto “sapere vedere,” knowing how to see. He said, “All our knowledge has its origins in our perceptions.” In its practical sense, "artistic vision" can mean training the eye to differentiate shapes, spatial relationships and value areas in a subject. Perception embodies interpretation, sensitivity, and intuition. Artistic vision combines observation, perception, creativity/intuition, and technical skill in conceiving and bringing a complete work of art to life. This complex miracle appears in a flash of insight, behind rational thought. Who would believe that the entire Universe could be held between the eyes and the human brain? As bearers of this gift, my desire is to see the value of artists advanced in society and in so doing create a better world. ~ Denise
