Destiny Allison edited the summary of Shaping Destiny: A quest for meaning in art and life Thursday, August 30, 2012.
Shaping Destiny is Destiny Allison’s journey through life and art from the first sculpture she created to just before her first major show at a prominent Santa Fe Gallery. Interspersing personal experience, childhood memories, and artistic exploration, Allison weaves a portrait of a woman in pursuit of herself.
Each chapter is preceded by a lesson that can be taken either literally or metaphorically and applied to both life and art. The lessons provide a resting place between chapters wrought with emotional and intellectual intensity as the artist probes deeper and deeper into what art means and how she defines herself.
