“Perfectionism is the voice of the oppressor, the enemy of the people. It will keep you cramped and insane your whole life... Perfectionism is a mean, frozen form of idealism, while messes are the artist’s true friend. What people somehow (inadvertently, I’m sure) forgot to mention when we were children was that we need to make messes in order to find out who we are and why we are here...” Anne Lamott, Bird by Bird. ...art by vanessa bell.
