My current drawings are using a scale pattern inspired by a vase I saw on tv on Antiques Roadshow. I'm obsessed with it. It's interesting how a particular way of mark making fires my imagination, becomes a compulsion for anything from a few days to weeks, then suddenly I wake up one morning and the infatuation is over, and I move on. (I may have blogged this before, the process fascinates me). You never can tell what will catch my eye or where. Sometimes that mark becomes part of my visual vocabulary and pops up from time to time, sometimes it never appears again.
I'm 48, female, just finished a two year course in Visual Arts, and am now back in the market for a job (boo!). I worked in the library field for the better part of three decades and two years ago took the plunge from a job that made me unhappy to go back to school. I've loved every moment of it and as soon as I have enough money to tide me over being a poverty stricken student I'm going back for more!
