How art helps

If we're all quite honest with ourselves, most of us feel lost at some point in our lives. Each day, we're all trying to make sense of our surroundings as well as our internal thoughts, feelings, and impulses. We strive for orientation in a world full of noise, confusion and doubt.

Art helps. Stories help. Good design helps. A great experience — in a book, an app, a theatre, a museum, a park— can be sense-making. It teaches us something and illuminates. That epiphany moment, whether it happens all at once or gradually over time, is what art is supposed to do. It should make us feel known. It should make us feel real.

Art has done that for me, and it's inspired me to share my art with others. I hope that Pinto & Co. does that for you, too.
