I love my alone time in the studio, just me, these two hands and my newest project. I love the quiet concentration, enjoy the fantastic feeling of my body disappearing as my mind slips away into my work.
I also thrive on human contact. Other people’s stories fascinate me. I can’t describe the thrill I feel when someone stands next to me, looks at my work and confesses a memory, a dream or an emotion.
Sometimes I’ll work out an idea with a fellow artist. It’s exiting to understand another person's approach. This is one way I discover exciting new tools.
Today I'm reaching out, creating new appendages as I search for new ways to interact with other art lovers and creative thinkers. I’m writing down these thoughts because I suspect there are others out there that have had similar thoughts. We’ll meet one day in person and share our perspectives. We’ll both learn and grow from the exchange.
