I'm Ann Howell Bullard.
DESIGNING + MAKING HAND-PAINTED LEATHER GOODS IS How I see like an artist.
I believe in being a little sponge.
I believe in observing the world through artful, curious eyes.
I believe in making "brain stamps" -- noticing visuals and feelings and sounds that make an impact on me, and absorbing them into my creative consciousness.
I believe in infusing those brain stamps into our spaces and into the objects we surround ourselves with.
I believe that everyone can see like an artist.
I believe that creative brains solve problems, and that artists' eyes see solutions that aren't immediately obvious.
I believe in listening, moving, and thinking like an artist.
I believe that art is not necessarily just painting and drawing.
