Shu Tu, Artist Spotlight No. 37


Life is a work-in-progress, and my work leads me to clarity.

In a world of meeting expectations and reaching for achievements, it’s easy to lose the sensibility of our own voices. My art is my way to discover, document, and reclaim phases of my life, as well as a constant reminder for how beautiful the ordinary and the truthful can be.
