Living with an Artist

Living with an artist means there are many, many piles of paper lying around the house, all in different stages of completion. And only Sojo knows whether or not they are keepers or can be thrown away. Every now and then, we go through the piles and put those she wants to keep on the wall of her bedroom. Dale spent a good portion of his afternoon taping them up on the last remaining wall space in her room, and now the entire place is covered in her own art that she has created in the last year.

It is so stunning and so her. No one else's stamp is on that room but her own--just the way she likes it.
