Featured in Artists at Work July 2012
Many people ask me how I create using so many different media and make my own hand painted papers/cloths… In one-off emails, I’ve tried to explain that since my only child was killed, EVERYTHING in my world has been about ART and survival!
To cope with losing my son, I turned his bedroom (the second bedroom of my small apartment) into a STUDIO (the pictures to the right of this collage show how cramped my creative space has become since 2009). I make most of my books, cards, bookmarks, small treasure, etc., in this tiny work space… I actually love looking at all the supplies; their colors inspire me to create.
My hand made papers and painted cloths are made in a corner of my kitchen (lower left); all my work dries on my bed or in the living room (upper left)… the entire apartment has become my humble abode and ART STUDIO! :)
