    Artist Statement- Brandy M Boyd

    I have loved art since I was a child. Even if I didn’t understand what it meant, I enjoyed the way it made me feel- how it made me feel a myriad of emotions and think all kinds of thoughts. My grandparents encouraged me to be a ‘maker’- to tinker and to create. I’m sure those early projects weren’t what anyone would consider art, but they instilled an appreciation for the process of making and created the habit of creativity.

    I am as fascinated by the processes as I am the finished works, so I studied art history in college. This introduced me to so many styles and influences. I weave bits and pieces of the visual as well as the philosophical influences of artists and movements that I feel connected to. I subscribe to the idea that things should be made to last as well- I despise the disposable nature of our society. I take great care in the craftsmanship of my work and the quality of my materials.

    I continue the ‘family business’ of working in the technical world by day and weaving maker magic by night (and on the weekends). My goal, not just in my art, but also in my interactions with people, is to make life more beautiful. We, as a society, focus a lot of our energy on ‘results’ without taking into consideration the journey. For me, the process of making a piece is just as valuable as the finished piece and I am passionate about helping others connect to their inner maker. Our wellbeing as people is improved by the act of making- our lives are made richer and the world around us becomes more connected.

    Ultimately, this is how I change the world and make it a better place- one piece of art at a time, one story, one connection.

      I am straddling two worlds- i am an artist and teacher for part of my days & still have one foot in a Mainstream Job. The work that i do have the time to make is therefore most precious to me as it represents the distillation of my creative energies.
