My calligraphy guild is doing a newsletter on studio spaces and I was asked to contribute. This is one of the pictures I sent for consideration. Originally I was going to tidy up before taking the pictures. I decided against that as this is how my studio looks 98% of the time. I can well imagine that that is true for most of us. Being creative does not tend to be tidy but sure is fun!
As a self-taught artist, I have developed a practice of experimenting with my own ideas, which seem boundless. Curiosity and research continually drive me daily. For over 20 years I have taken an explorative approach towards art making. My optimistic approach to life is represented in my art as I find beauty in even the most difficult circumstances. This beautiful, imperfect life I live is meant to be shared through my creativity, resourcefulness and curiosity. I hope to influence my audience with joy.
