Each time I dropped a class in college, I filled the spot with an art class but it never occurred to me to “do” art. Years later, a chain of unrelated events led to a career in the arts.
For more than 25 years I have created – made things – with the intention of selling – it became my business. Turning a passion or hobby into the way you make money can change your perspective, goals, sense of success, and certainly feed insecurities. It was all really great until it wasn’t fun anymore.
Now I try to be mindful to create or make things that feed a voice or a vision or just feel good. Fabric has always been my primary passion but I am finding tin, handmade books, photography and paper collage part of my studio creative experience.
