'Let her sleep because when she wakes she will move mountains.' What a great quote! It grabs me because I am one that needs a lot of sleep. I used to be concerned that saying that would make me sound lazy. I no longer have that concern. I know that my busy and creative mind needs more sleep the average bear. So what. And the moving mountains bit, well, I know that I can move mountains and I can see myself doing more of that!
This page of my journal seems exactly right for this quote. The right hand page has marbling on it that look like mountains to me so I just left that page as is.
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.
