I have always loved words…this blog is a collection of poems I have written over the years. As a child, teenager, young adult, first love, scorned love, new mother…I wrote about everything. So I plan to dig through my storage boxes, find poems and share them on this blog…I will share them warts and all…just the way they have been written. I bet I’ll cringe when transcribing some of them…but this is what I want to do. It’s about time they get out of the cobwebs, hidden in dark boxes…get some air. This is a journey…hopefully a very interesting one. It’s going to be really hard to not edit…but I’m going to learn more about me and my self restraint!!
Spontaneity is the watchword that informs my art practice. My artwork celebrates the energy of abstract expressionism. 'why not?' underlines my creative process. Forget the box! Its obsolete...it's all about whatever shape you want to throw on that dance floor! The process drives my practice!! For me, work well done is work I have thoroughly enjoyed making...work that has made me think, sweat, cry, scream and come back for more!!! Work that gets my back up; pushes me...gives me cause for doubt. Makes me push in order for 'why not?' to become possible. Boundaries? What boundaries?
