A New Start

There’s something about the start of a new year that always gives me this feeling like I can restart, redirect…reboot my life. This year, rather than resolutions, a friend suggested the idea of “devotions” which took things in a direction of intent, rather than product. A devotion is a more fluid and thoughtful experience…it evolves over time. So my devotion this year is to make work, since that’s the core of who I am as an artist. This past semester was a fallow time - too much energy was going out to really have the mental space to make new work myself. Now, it’s spring (well at least it feels like it in SoCal) and the energy feels like it wants to move forward. I’ve worked on putting into practice the LensCulture written reviews I’d discussed earlier - it took a while to process - the experience is still informing my choices,
