Well, we are almost one year into a global pandemic and the isolation it brings. For me, that isolation is extra time spent in the studio and at home working on random projects: some illustration when I am with my kids, some digital art when I can't sleep, weaving when I need redundancy and time to allow my mind to wonder, dancing when I feel a spark of energy, and metal work and woodwork in between my custom design clients.
And really, this all feels about on par with the chaos of the current state of things. My work is currently in a meandering, aimless place, and with everything else happening in the US and globally, I am okay with that. I am okay with seeing where this all shakes out and what path I will decide to focus my attention on as we shift away from our homes and eventually coexist in community once again.
Until then, I am going to take my art one day at a time, one project at a time, with little care about the end result.
