The Long of it:  Becoming a Visual Artist

I started making art early in life and continue to find it comforting. I enjoy learning new approaches and exploring various media. My personal favorite to date is mixed media with metal.

 

Mostly I make art for the joy of creating - it seldom fails to challenge my subconscious to show itself.  Often I have felt like a slave to the work. I'll begin in one direction and the work itself leads me in another. It is as if the art is in control and I'm a vehicle for its expression. While I am able to set myself to the task of rendering, I prefer a more free-flowing experience in creative endeavors.

 

Art making will take me places I've never gone before and in so doing, gives rise to layers of emotion. In the end, I hope those viewing my work will experience some of the feelings that arose during the process.

 

When my heart is lifted and my eyelids relax, I know the piece is complete it doesn't need me anymore.

It is its own entity. All that remains to do is celebrate it.
