I am always in thought about what direction I want my art to go. Having taught art for thirteen years I exposed my students as well as myself to different art forms such as ;drawing, painting, printmaking, sculpture, collage making etc. So when people ask me what is my area? I have none and don't want one either!. I feel the way I work is open, open to me being spontaneous. I do not want to box my inspiration or creativity. I want it to flow naturally. Pablo Picasso once said. that all children are artist until they grow up. I never, ever want to grow up! I feel that I am at my best when I work freely. Sometimes I might mix quilting with painting, painting with sculpture. Only my inspration knows the answer.
