Here's a quote from a graphic designer's post:
But I design because I love it. I design because when I donít, odd things happen inside me and the world takes on a certain pallor.

This conversation and his writings got me thinking about what is art and who can be considered an artist. What I've come up with is art is the ability to see something differently and create something concrete with that vision. In a way, I think every person can be an artist at whatever they do- graphic designer, stamper, dancer, tailor, doctor. I remember once I picked up a pair of shoes from the shoe repair and the quality of the work done awed me because in a sense it was beautiful, perhaps even artistic. If you've been blessed with a vision and you've been blessed with the ability to share it with the world, please do so and make the world a better, more beautiful place!
