Words spoken by fellow creator, fellow YAAP artist and fellow friend Amber Aasman. Words that I keep close to heart in my own journey with I.AM. It is a true blessing to witness Wild Blue Yonder into its journey, capturing gems of Canadiana wilderness through their work. Shout out to Ontario Culture Days for connecting our worlds together :)
