Igloo Letterpress did it again. I needed to order new cards and I wanted to update the design to reflect the focus on my art over the last year. I sent them a challenging line drawing to include and they executed it perfectly.
Next weekend, September 27th and 28th, I will be opening my studio to the public to share my work and discuss my process. I'll have a collaborative project that visitors can work on with me and seasonal refreshments like apple cider donuts and coffee. Yum.
Inspiration is an essential part of making things. Looking at the world around us and letting the bits and pieces that we discover permeate our subconscious is an excellent way to push ourselves into new creative territory. These are a few things that are inspiring me right now.
At the beginning of March something unusual happened. At the separate recommendations of two different friends, I took a collage workshop with local artist Jonathan Talbot. I had no expectations and thought it would be a fun weekend making some art. It certainly was, but it was also so much more.
