Not everything I do involves drawing. One hobby I became interested in at a very young age was sewing. My mom could sew a button but not much more. My grandma however use to make a lot of my mom's clothes and tons of square dance dresses. I had been given an old sewing maching in middle school and had tried to find classes to show me how to sew. I then ventured to the internet and decided to learn on my own. Sewing came easy to me. The main reason I wanted to learn to sew was to make costumes. My friends and I, loved going to Anime conventions and I wanted to experience the entire convention as it was planned, this would include a costume. My costumes have included, Kim Possible, Rogue, and this year young Elastigirl from The Incredibles. My entire costume is hand made. I even permed and combined two wigs to make the Rogue hair.

We are in the middle of spring although April was cold and pushed it back; now May is too warm and is pulling summer forward. Despite this situation, the calendar gives the same number of days.

And, in a way, quiet days in the studio are like early spring as I work on canvases. At first they are black and white and gray, something like winter. Only when I apply color do they blossom into the new life of spring.

In their early stages my canvases present a monochrome experience, lined up and waiting expectantly like bare trees. Color is not yet applied so little life emanates from their surfaces. But the structure is there, strong and ready for the reemergence of foliage, blooms, and fruit.

I am fortunate to be able to create my own spring, unaffected by the vagaries of the climate, but I do enjoy the ever-changing weather as viewed from my studio.

“Found Subjects”

With one year of pursuing my masters under my belt, I find myself far removed from a cohesive body of work for this show.  My education is encouraging me to look in numerous directions in my practice and I am taking full advantage of the encouragement.  I do find, however, that I can still rely on my 'found' subjects and this show does just that: exhibits some of my more recent finds.
