Declaration of Artistic Freedom

I, Dana Ellen D'Ascoli, believe that every artist has a unique story to tell and the artist needs to trust in his/her talent and the special perspective he/she brings to the story. By trusting in my own truth I share a piece of myself with the world every time I perform, thus touching people in my own individual way. Therefore no two artists are alike and that is what makes everyone's gift so special - it cannot be duplicated!

I am committed to growing as an artist and trusting that I am here for a purpose. I will live in the moment, find joy in the unknown and rediscover my passion for my true calling!

I respect that there will be ups and downs along my artistic path. With faith in myself and the process I will embrace challenges and setbacks along the way for I know that these are the building blocks of knowledge and growth!
