Back to basics
Creatively I am starting again. I have had an amazing year for my business and continue to be offered new opportunities and have lots to look forward to in 2013. With the studio move though I have felt in limbo, and as I've come to be known for the style of landscapes I create I have continued to create them. But something inside wants me to pursue a new direction. Really it's a more vivid version of me, hopefully a more confident creator. When I teach the workshops I love encouraging messiness and creating textures and papers to use which are uninhibited and free. So, I've been doing what I love, and without a total vision for the work, I have been mark making and experimenting with the media that have become familiar to me, ink, collage and stitch. I've bled out the colour....see previous post on black....and I am starting out on a new creative journey. It feels exciting and liberating and a little scary. I'm waiting for the colour and shape to arrive.
