Do your pART: Art is a form of meditation

The Chinese term wu wei captures it best,  effortless action

The Do you pARTSeries is a new addition to the Longmont Leader. In this series, we will share a local artist's favorite work while sharing a little bit about them. Artists are asked for fill out a questionnaire and send digital photos or videos of their art to news@longmontleader.com. All art styles are accepted and will be published at the discretion of the editor.  

For artist Dava Money, art is a form of meditation. 

"I may have an image in mind when I begin however the creative process soon takes over and I am simply the observer. The Chinese term wu wei captures it best,  effortless action," she said.

Compelled to create, Money looks to the connections between things, the beauty of people and animals and flowers to inspire her art.

"Flowers especially call to me because of their fragility and impermanence," she said.
