Crafting Green


Did you know you can make paper from decomposed leaves? I haven't done it yet, but it may be on my horizon this fall. It's immensely satisfying making full circle artwork. Only recycled materials. The craft store graveyard is not what you think. It is a secret garden. It is lush with all the materials I need. Indeed, I feel full of excitement knowing it isn't the WHAT will I create but the HOW that is the solution. We live on this big beautiful green planet and I've loved her from the beginning. My HOW is exquisite and green just like her. 

Art with Intention

I am a observer and listener to all the details in a moment. I absorb. And what I've found is that a great deal of time and energy is spent on destruction and spite. It is by no means the only thing, but it certainly seems to be a significant dose. I don't want to add to this negativity. I want to produce art that is beautiful, yes, but art that makes you feel good. I wish for you to feel calm or pleased in the way a small smirk creeps onto your face. As a visual culture and a visual artist I am adding to the daily dose of your dreams and ideas. What I produce and you see matters. It is intentional. And I hope that it brings you joy.
