the making process

It has taken a lifetime to put myself into my art and it is a spiritual journey. Everything is everything.
I used to see my work as conceptual because I like thinking that art is based on ideas, but now I realize that I’m more interested in ‘insight’. I love the satisfaction that comes with creation and never want to lose the pleasure of making.

The art I make is my life and I’m trying to allow the making process to take over from the thinking process.

  4. The creative process, the idea, the plan, the doing, the art.

    Sometimes it has a mind of its own.
