Synopsis: For over sixty years, artist Don Seiden has lived the aesthetic philosophy he shares in Art Works, inspiring students and colleagues throughout the world. His message is simple: No matter who you are, creating art allows you to see your life more completely. To document this philosophy, Seiden began working with a writer, Amy Davis. Art Works weaves an intimate dialogue between Seiden and Davis throughout each chapter, sharing glimpses of the personal and professional journey this aesthetic philosophy guided for each of them. Thus, what began as a book based on Seiden's own experiences as an artist, educator, and therapist grew into a twenty-year collaboration and rich friendship with Davis, despite nearly forty years difference in age. The result is a unique blend of insight and inspiration that defies categorization. Like art, the book reveals new possibilities each time you read it.

About the Author: Don Seiden is an artist, art educator, and pioneer of art therapy in the Midwest. His artwork has appeared in galleries, museums, and private collections, and his work and home have been featured in numerous publications. Seiden also has been the subject of a book, An Artist's Life: The Life and Work of Don Seiden by Jane Stevens, and several short films. In addition to founding the art therapy department at the School of the Art Institute of Chicago, he has served as a former chair for the sculpture, art education, and art therapy departments at SAIC. He was also the founding president of the Illinois Art Therapy Association. Seiden is co-author of Direct Metal Sculpture, author of Mind Over Matter, and author and illustrator of Artobiography. He lives in Chicago with his wife, Jackie.

Amy Davis's writing has appeared in The Sun, Strong Coffee, Maxine, and Book magazine, among other publications. She has received artist residencies at Ragdale and has taught writing and guest-lectured for more than twenty years at high schools, colleges, and art centers, including at the Guild Literary Complex, School of the Art Institute of Chicago, and Columbia College-Chicago. In 1994, Davis co-founded WorkShirts Writing Center, where she taught fiction writing, ran a public reading series, and was editor-in-chief of the award-winning, national literary magazine, Fish Stories: Collectives I-IV. Currently, she serves as director of The Writers WorkSpace, a shared writing studio in Chicago. Davis lives in Evanston, Illinois, with her husband and daughter.
