I'VE SPENT THE FIRST THREE YEARS OF CIESLINSKI GOODS FOCUSING ON MAKING THIS A BUSINESS AND I'VE FOUND THAT IT TAKES AWAY FROM THE FLOW OF WHAT MAKING ART ACTUALLY DOES FOR ME. IT IS A COLLECTION OF HOBBIES THAT BRING ME IKIGAI. THAT SAID, CIESLINSKI GOODS IS MADE UP OF THE THINGS THAT MAKE ME CURIOUS AND IT'S ALWAYS CHANGING. ARTFORM PROVIDES ME WITH A WAY TO COMMUNICATE WITH MYSELF. IN MY DAY JOB I AM A SOCIAL WORKER AND IT IS MY HOPE TO ONE DAY EXTEND MY KNOWLEDGE AND LOVE OF CREATING THINGS WITH OTHERS BY OPENING A CENTER FOR CARPENTRY, POTTERY, STREET ART, AND DANCE RUN BY ARTISTS AND TRADESPEOPLE. BEING A KID THAT WENT THROUGH A PROCESS OF DEFUNDED ART PROGRAMS, IT IS VITAL FOR ALL PEOPLE TO HAVE ACCESS, THE TOOLS, AND THE KNOWLEDGE TO EXPLORE THEIR CULTURE/PERSON, INTROSPECTION, TEAMWORK, AND SPARKING NEIGHBORHOOD OWNED PROJECTS.
