About Bobbi Jene's Creative Process
To amplify the human condition.
To speak clear, wild, and full of grace.
To ask questions and create conversation.
To reveal the pleasure and pervasiveness of effort, decoupling it from the concept of burden and attempt to share how deeply it is connected to our most basic desires.
