This Fall I have decided to push myself to enter the world of galleries once more and have started to apply to be represented in some regional and national locations. There are also competitive shows that have begun to peak my interest as I continue to grow in my aesthetics, forms and intent of my pieces. I want people to be able to enjoy my work in their homes and daily lives.
As an artist, I think one of the hardest things to accomplish is being proud and excited about your work...to be able to share that with a broader audience at this point in my professional career is becoming a source of motivation. Lately, I have been watching my children use my latest work and what strikes me time and time again is what they love about eating and drinking out of those vessels...the fact that a part of me is in them and they love that. I have to say it has been too long since I have let people in...my insecurities as an artist got the best of me. They say growing older makes you wiser...I find that with age comes the desire to make sense out of the life that has been given to us all.
Namaste my friends.
