CREATING, that is.
My background in is fine art. I studied it in college. I lived it for years and I was certain I would wind up living in some tiny, rat hole somewhere doing nothing but painting, drawing, photographing, sculpting and anything else that had to do with just making stuff. It was never about finding a way to get rich or even famous but I wanted to continue to push myself and all the stuff around me to see things in new ways. Life never really turns out the way you planned. I think we all know that. I have yet to meet that person. Maybe they're out there, let me know if you've run into them. I'm pretty happy with the life I have, yet the need to continue to create hasn't diminished. Actually, I think it has gotten stronger.
I've been collecting found objects, and scraps and merging them with personal drawings, paintings and photographs to create collages. My latest obsession. There's something pretty cool about taking something that you see one way and by combining it with something else it takes on a new meaning. It's story changes, kind of like your own.
