I am inspired by artists who surprise us by leaving their messages of hope, beauty, frustration and anguish all around the city for me to find.
Sometimes they exist in communities like The Tiberino Museum in Powelton Village.
Other times they reclaim an area of urban decay.
Artists embolden me to speak my own truth, and to do so from a place of unconditional love.
Most amazing of all, when I need a kick in the ass they can sense it and they chalk my office building.
