I heard back from Grace Bonney today, (creator of design*sponge) and she is going to mention my blog on her site tomorrow (July 27, 2007). So, now the pressure is on to explain who I am and what I’m doing to people who don’t know me and my work. Hopefully, her mention will bring some fresh eyes and perspectives to my comment section. Feedback is ALWAYS welcome.
Who am I and why did I start this blog?
Well, I’m a graduate student getting my MFA in Fibers at Savannah College of Art and Design. My focus in the program is fine art. This quarter, I’ve really been struggling with coming up with the concept of what I’m working on. I’ve been using my family photos for a while now, and I’m trying to dig deeper and figure out why I am so drawn to these photos. My studio practice at the moment are experiments to get to something deeper. The work you see on my blog so far, are all experiments and exercises in my notebook and studio…sketches, of sorts, to get me closer to the root of my ideas. I’m net there yet! 😉 I usually check in on Saturdays and post what I have been up to for the week. I would love for you to come back and visit to check my progress. Hopefully, I’ll have some! Thanks for visiting…and please comment!
