Travels as Cosmic Pearl

Art is the way I make sense of the world. It is a form of meditation. Art has helped me process feelings and is something that makes my life worth living.

My first love is fiber. I have been using a needle since I was five. I enjoy crewel, knitting, quilting, applique, embroidery, and beading. I have had one art quilt exhibited in a juried show at the Coos Art Museum, in Coos Bay, Oregon, USA. I also participated in The Bead Journal Project 2007, for which I made beaded barrettes on the themes of books I had read that year. Most of the books were classics and dealt with contemporary issues. Each barrette was my tribute to an author and an expression of my desire to get people to think.

I started drawing and making hand carved linoleum stamps three years ago. Currently, I am involved in the Sketchbook Project 2011, for which I am making linoleum-printed faces. I have been printing the faces of the people responsible for the financial crisis in the United States. I consider my art outsider art, because I am self taught. I create art for myself and not to please others. Art is a way in which I can communicate in a language that is instinctual. In some ways, I have word block. Art is my sign language; it speaks for me.

I have worked with mixed media, but consider myself a beginner. I hope that being in an artist’s guild will give me the courage to stretch and grow my artistic muscles in new ways. My goal is to complement my other mediums through this journey, not abandon them. I look forward to learning more about the gifts that I have as I journey through the Imagi-Nation.

About artrites

Some people would see only a middle aged woman, albeit fairly well preserved, but in reality, I'm an English writer and artist (order exchangeable) living in Germany. I'm a blended learning specialist, graphic designer, and train adult education teachers, when I can find the work. There is far, far more to me that even that, of course, but discovering that is the journey you can undertake by reading this blog.
