Three and a half months of slow and steady progress – (Feeling) Fear is finally complete!
As this year’s production has slowed, creating these fiber art pieces has become an opportunity to be more contemplative, contributing to my personal growth as I construct each one. I seem to choose the feeling to create that I most need to understand and process in the moments it takes to make my art. To state that more clearly, every time I step into my studio to work on the fiber feeling, I give mental focus to the actual feeling and how it impacts me and my life. As a result, I discover the ways the feeling is serving me and where it is holding me back from achieving my goals.
Through my art making process, I am learning to find solutions within my feelings. What more could one want from their creative life?

Info about my Feelings series: I interpret my random abstract doodles as emotions. The guiding point is the outer boundary of the doodle. The boundary evokes the feeling. From there, I contemplate how to bring that particular feeling alive in fiber.
