Just because my mentorship program has come to an end doesn't mean the work I began in the program has. The above image is a glimpse of one of the pieces I am working on in the studio these days (and hope to have finished in time for the Open House!). It is one of many in pieces in the Cellular Stories series that continues to emerge from a lot of hard work, trusting in the process, jumping off cliffs, and riding the momentum. That is, after all, the greatest takeaway from ELEVATE: confidence in myself as an artist.
This is another piece that is a WIP. I'm not a collage person...I generally avoid it like the plague. However, another artist in the group was doing some amazing things with collage that really impressed me, and I saw how it could be used as a tool to express exactly what I was trying to express. I'm not sure I'm there yet with this piece, but it has stirred something in me. And that's all that counts.
I invite you to the Cellular Stories Open House to see where these pieces are at...or where they lead me to. It's always a journey.
