I embarked on a ten-month course called â€œSeriously Creativeâ€ with artist and creativity coach Mary Sullivan Holdgrafer (www.exploringcreativity.com). Throughout the monthly workshops we explored personal topics that affect how we make (or donâ€™t make)art. â€œSecretsâ€ was one of those topics. We are often reluctant to tell our
innermost secrets, yet acknowledging them can release any hold they may have over us. This box became the â€œkeeper of my secretsâ€. My secrets are written in the lining and interfacing of the box and it has been filled with objects that represent those secrets. Stitched tightly shut, my secrets canâ€™t â€œescapeâ€.
