the importance of Mentors

I’ve finally found some substantial fuel!! I want to give a special thanks to my mentor, Prof. Ellen Ellis, for agreeing to share her time and knowledge with me.  Ellen had actually become an unofficial mentor of mine during undergraduate studies, and had been a huge inspiration to me….challenging me to be more aware, and to be brave….and always pointed me in right direction.  Nonetheless, our first meeting was a success!  Again, putting me on the right track. So, we briefly spoke of my concern with fashion not really being accepted in the art world as “art”, and how can an artist break that barrier between fine arts and fashion design. This begins my research on Transparency.  I realize that the issues I care about all have a unique relationship to transparencies or lack there of. We have a sick/unfortunate habit of only wanting to share the good and leave out the bad. I  guess as a people, we have a lot to be embarrassed about.  There
