New Work

I have started down another lane for creating my artwork. My new obsession is cut-paper art. It started out as a way to be creative on the fly in my sketchbook with abstract pieces that were leftovers in my scrap box. I liked the process so much that I decided to pursue it further. Using up discarded work and found paper, I now cut them up and turn them into 3D collages.

The Struggle

This is my first post to my website. I will try to tell a little bit of my story in future posts. But for now just a short one will have to do.

My head has been filled with so many ideas lately. Ideas for my shop (re-souL), ideas on my next show in September, ideas for how to monetize my art. I’m starting to feel the struggle to keep up and the drain on my brain.

That said, art is my therapy. My studio is my refuge. But, what do you do when even your sane place starts to feel like work?

I decided to play. If I cannot get some quality time in the studio to do big projects, I surely can do something fun for 15 to 30 minutes a day to keep up with my practice and to keep the pressure off.  So I decided to cut up some old paintings on paper that were FAILS and find something new to do with them. I call them Colour Forms. Remember Color Forms? Shapes and colors to illustrate and stick? Anyway, that’s what my little cut pieces of painted are to me. Here are a few samples of some compositions as of late.
