Found objects, shapes, paint, beads, wires and fabric all find homes with me. I think grommets are especially useful items. I look at many of the works by other art quilters and wonder why mine always seem to turn out so funky, so busy, so fill of stuff. Other artists produce sophisticated works that make me marvel at their designs - their urbane-ness (is that a word?).
As I travel this creative road I'm trying to accept and embrace my visions. To produce them as they appear in my mind's eye. Perhaps, more than all the training in the world, this is one of the most freeing and hardest to achieve qualities an artist can have.
