This blog is about process. In art and maybe thought. The quasi-dictionary definitions are to describe the 'feeling' part of the process because there is always an emotional/passionate component beyond the tools and materials. What is it that got this particular piece off the ground? What was the personal involvement? In reading bios/artist's statements, I sort of get lost in the language, so I decided to make this one served by the K.I.S.S. 'one word' principle for each piece.
As for biography, I have had a great life, great friends and teachers, great parents, great husband, great kids and grandkids. Seattle born and permanently attached to living in California. Great high school art program that directed my path. I do lots of stuff. I love it. It's a journey.
Favorite quotes, both from Emil Zola:
"An artist is nothing without the gift, and the gift is nothing without the work."
"If you ask me what I can be in this world, I, an artist, will answer you. I am here to live out loud."
I think both of those quotes have to do with being unafraid. "Today is the day to do it." —carole dwinell
