The decorative knots you see here were made years ago when I was too sick to do much of anything, even, most of the time, to make simple things, but I longed to, and every now and then I had a day when I could break through the thick, dense fog of illness to actually make something. Like these knots.
I found these while going through stuff in my studio, trying to make space.
There's no practical reason to keep these, but they tug at me and remind me how far I've come, what a gift it is to be well.
They also remind me how powerful that urge to make is in many of us. Making time for it helps us become ourselves again.
As a visual artist I like nothing more than getting up to my elbows in paint or little plastic toys, or wading in at the deep end in pursuit of an idea. When I am not teaching others in a similar vein, you can find me researching, writing and noodling around in my studio, seeing where my latest lines of inquiry lead me.
