Visual Arts: Constructions/Collage, Functional and/or Decorative, Mixed Media, Painting, Printmaking, Works on paper
I’m an artist who is often found drinking a nice cup of tea in between, carving & printing, plotting & planning projects, and gardening or hiking with my pup all while meandering in my mind about infinite possibilities and the orbiting perplexity of things. . .
Not so long ago, I wrapped up a 550 mile backpacking pilgrimage from the French Pyrenees down to the most western point in Finisterre, Spain, where I took a cleansing break from art making and dwelled in the peaceful simple gesture of walking. I cannot help but feel a new phase of art making is soon to emerge. What will it be?
