Drawing




Drawing is as important to me as my stitching, I know I'm trying to capture not only what I see but more importantly what I actually feel.

My themes, colours and mark making have to be in a harmony with me , using my thoughts, moods and feelings, which of course differ daily.
Working on your art work everyday, it will become apparent how our very nature embodies our creative decisions.

Beautiful. You have a wonderful way of perceiving the world.

Yes, drawing is such a good and useful practice! Love the energy of marks in the field leading us back in space.

Seeing the slight crescent moon in the sky reminds me of a fight I had with my high school art teacher. I was doing a silkscreen of cattails and a mountain and there was a crescent moon in the sky. He commented on the print, saying he liked it, but that one never saw the moon in the daytime. I was shocked and stuck to my knowing that one sure did! He never believed me and I lost all faith in him as an visual observer!

I know that you use your drawings as a starting point for your textiles but I think they are tremendously strong in their own right. They remind me of Van Gogh.
