fabric and mixed media - 2015
50.25"h x 34"w
A few years ago I was fortunate to have had my work presented on The Textile Blog which is the well known blog of English writer, facilitator, and motivator for creative artists, John Hopper. It was an interesting article as he presented his thoughts and observations about my work. Now John has begun an online publication of a beautiful magazine; Inspirational.
John shared with me his desire for Inspirational to be not only inspirational, but also aspirational, to an audience of artist and non-artist alike.
He stated that Inspirational will not dwell so much on artist techniques or where work has been sold or shown. Instead, it will concentrate on how each artist perceives the world around them and how that perception in turn becomes projected back onto the world through their work.
The magazine is in a downloadable format which means Inspirational can be instantly and easily available to an international audience. This format also supports his concern for nature and the conservation of the natural world by not using paper.
As the publication has progressed he is presenting a higher quality of images of the work of the international list of artists he features. The work of the artists is not limited to textiles. He has expressed his hope that Inspirational will be a valued addition to the creative arts media that already exists, as well as being an outlet for showing another facet of what it is to be a creative individual, and to see the world through that unique perspective.
My work will be in the September 15, 2015 issue. Here is the list of all the artists for this issue:
