I looked through my current sketchbooks, and studio work, as a starting point for this book. The theme "Parts of the Whole" could describe my process, as well as a phrase that speaks to larger contexts, and communities. I enjoyed making this sketchbook because I didn't think about it as a private book. It seemed like a public piece from the very beginning.
In terms of my process, I research what I am working on, collect information, read, draw, paint, build, consider how the images fit the ideas and materials. In a broad way I enjoy being immersed in what I am doing, and consider "places" I have not been before. Other times I come across something unexpected, for example, outside, while I am walking, that inspires an idea, or becomes a piece. It isn't so predictable.
I have been creative since a young age. I can't remember a time when art wasn't part of my life. In my childhood home, I worked in a tiny room that was referred to as the "den". I grew up near Lake Superior, and today live by the Pacific Ocean.
This experience has made me think about what is, and isn't, recorded in 30 pages (laugh). I didn't count the pages, but that seems about right.
