"As a young child I learned by example to create. My Grandmother was a 'Maker'. She was always creating something, and soon so was I. As I grew older, I spent most of my time alone. Crippled at times from major depression, invincible at times through major mania. I created and crafted in any area in which I could find the resources.
Over time I have taught myself to sculpt, weave, draw, paint, design, build and play music. My creativity through the years has manifested in many ways. Somehow-strangely, like my internal struggles it has taken on different shapes, colors, textures and sounds.
I feel that showing ones creations, at least for myself, makes one very vulnerable and so completely exposed. I try to stay true to myself, though I remain very private about my art. So, symbolically, I stand here in front of you terrified yet joyful, open and honest. I can only hope that my work can show a glimpse into my journey and that it will be encouraging to anyone, despite their struggles, in that they too can create." ~ Cole Klovski
Cole is also the Chesterfield Building Services Coordinator for Duke Pratt School of Engineering.
