Art at the Speed of Life by Pam Carriker
I was so beyond thrilled awhile back when Pam Carriker asked me to contribute to her book! I was over the moon excited, a challenge, an adventure and a new art direction for myself all rolled into one! Often my work is inspired by a memory from childhood, a moment in the past that has stayed with me for years. These may not be “the most important” memory, it may be something as simple as a thought, or a feeling, but for some reason it stays with you, through my art I often like to capture those moments…. The simple dress form is an image I have been playing with for some time. It may be a little girl’s dress or a doll dress, but I am drawn to these images and they have allowed me to explore and experiment with techniques, while allowing the image itself to stay fairly simple.
