"Art washes away from the soul the dust of everyday life." ~Pablo Picasso
This quote is one of my favorites, as it encompasses how I feel about the need for creativity in my life. On days that I am able to work or play in a creative way, I feel refreshed, happy, and a whole lot less "dusty".
I love bright and intense color. The blending, layering, and manipulation of colors on fabric (especially silk) is exciting to me. I enjoy experimenting with different techniques, and also having unexpected elements that surface during the process. I really like having that element of surprise as part of my creative ventures: it reminds me to let go of expectations and just be part of the flow~~-~~--~~-~
