The work I LOVE to create:

November 28, 2018

I am a mixed media, conceptual artist.  I used to be pretty timid about telling people that I use a process similar to paper mâché to create my sculptures, but God redeemed it for me!  I LOVE LOVE LOVE to use newspaper. Many times while sculpting I will pause to read a story before taking the paper and twisting it into my piece.  Many times, what I read makes me cry.  Sometimes it makes me smile.  What I realized is that I am using people's stories -- the heartbreak and devastation, to the heart warming and wonderful stories that are found in MY city -- I get to take people's lives and use them to create artwork that speaks a message of hope and encouragement to people.  I love the beauty in that. It's so much more than a cheap resource.  It's stories. It's people. It's my favorite redemption story of all!  I also realized that if God is calling me to create...I better do it! I better not wait till I have access to a metal foundry, a ceramic studio...or anything else. Blessings follow obedience. Besides, I have come to love the meaning behind the work I create. If for no other reason than it speaks to ME. It connects me to my creator, creatively...and I absolutely LOVE it!
