The prompt for all of January is words. Having already done a page about my word for the year (sufficient) I wasn't quite sure what do with this prompt. This month is busy for me so I am trying to make the most of my time. Yesterday I installed some of my art at the Ayr Library as I am the Artist in Residence this year. I talked with the co-ordinators about a number of things including having a small display of altered book pages. That was fresh in my mind while thinking about my journal page this week. Therefore my journal page is doing double duty this week. I will use this page as part of my display. I found the word light on this page and encircled it with the candle flame.
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.
