Creativity is a funny beast. I actually started writing as an outlet for my imagination. As an art teacher, it's difficult to watch everyone around you being artistic when you don't have time to dive in yourself. I was too busy helping my students. Yes, I do maybe one piece a year so they can watch. It's a great learning tool.
I also had no room in my home for a studio, so...writing seemed like a natural solution. Most of the pieces you see here were done in workshop environments although, now that my children are close to leaving the roost, I plan to set up a studio in my home. My two favorite mediums are three-color reduction monoprints and watercolor.
