What ideas / questions / reflections / challenges might be arising as you work with your theme (theme) – How are you working with the meaning of your word? Where are you drawing inspiration from?

I have been reflecting on beginnings, endings, and where inspiration comes from. In my art work I like to bring together objects and see where they lead me. I am also a musical instrument maker which requires precision, so I have used the theme of messy to explore another way of working.

How were you introduced to art? Was it someone, a class, a culture, family, friends, etc.?

I have always doodled. I had my first art teacher over 50 years ago when I was 7. She was a neighbor painter/artist who encouraged me and showed me basics of painting.

What role does art play in your life today? How has art made you feel these past few months / year / during the pandemic?

Art and music are central to my life. Creating art and playing music has been grounding for me, especially over the last few years.
