I’ve revived an old blog with some changes that make it look pretty much like the one you’ve been seeing and will play around with it a little more. I’m hoping this works better than the last one was so this’ll be test run. Please let me know how it looks to you.
I’m sharing with you all of the pieces I’ve done in a class with Fiber Artist, Pamela Allen. http://www.pamelart.com/ I’m working on a final piece now.
The natural world is phenomenal and so much of the man-made world - our architecture, our cities - are stunning accomplishments. They exist hand in hand in both beautiful expressions and sometimes disastrous manifestations.
Our entire existence with the natural and the invented is intertwined – each dependent on the other, even as my art evolves, each breathing in the wake of the other.
Surface design is one aspect of the process that I love. I thoroughly enjoy the play with color, value and construct, particularly the improvisation which starts with one thing, an idea, a glimpse of a vision, perhaps something that captures my eye for a moment in time and it grows organically. I become focused on whatever piece I'm working on and follow my muse to find my way.
