Things keep ticking away. My 32nd birthday has come and gone and I feel as if many of the goals I set before me have been met thus far. All in all I am not upset about turning another year old. It is a mark of achievment. I have made some interesting memories, though not all I am fond of, but that is part of growing as an individual. My work in heavily influenced by these elements, and I hope that as people view my work it is evident.
I just started this website and blog. I am open to suggestions or feedback so feel free to say anything. Even if you really dislike something you see, tell me. I might not take heed to everyone's advice, just know that that is the way of an artist.
I wish that I could be in my studio 8-12 hours a day making work or marketing my work but that isn't the case. I have people that depend on me and having a much steadier income is easier for them and in turn me. I don't really enjoy my current job but most people don't from what I have gathered. It almost sucks my creativity out of me so that when I get home I just want to plop on the couch and forget about everything. It's still a new job, so maybe it will get easier with more time and adjusting to the new schedule. One can only hope. If it doesn't...well I guess I will be looking for another job, but that's the plan anyway, to eventually teach college level. I just hope I can find a position doing just that.
The work that you will find on my site is current work I am making for my thesis project. I just started last semester. I hope to have at least two more created before this semester is over and then I have the whole summer to work on things. I am hoping to really get this idea I have for an installation piece to come together. I have a lot of sewing and knitting work to do in order to have it done by the end of spring 2012, I hope it turns out. I will post some models of some of the ideas I have for it once they are put together.
I hope to hear from you!
