I Need to Make Things Even if Nobody Cares

On the Road

  • January 30, 2019

This  was a revisit to "orange and black". Individually strong colours but that in-betweeny mix? Pure Magic. The image was a left-over from the Conversations series. Hwy#2 through New England has many happy childhood memories as well as recent ones ...Tom and I travelled from Washington State across the US following #2. The 302 is a short diversion off it that heads south to Portland. It reminds me of freedom from routine, hot sun, stuffy cabins, warm pine and diner meals. The very best parts of a road trip!

Maker of Things

The little details, the subtle nuance.
How we feel, what we see and smell and hear.
The distant call of a crow.
The feel of the Spring sun on our face as we emerge from the dark, cold winter.
These are the experiences and layers that interest me.

Because everything is connected to everything.

Our stories may be different but why we tell them is the same.
To feel connected and loved.
To be heard.

Through layers of wax and plaster, paint and photographs.
With rusty nails and found objects and wire.
These are my stories.
