In preparation for an upcoming conference with creative educators, I asked myself a few basic questions to get my ‘elevator pitch’ down about my work. An excellent realization occurred:
What is your work about?
Gray areas – in the ways we try to relate, to others, and the world. I’m also interested in the ways variation in mental health and illness affect these relationships.
How do you work on this theme? Express these ideas?
By forging relationships between objects; sometimes with people, sometimes within personal domestic spaces – often they are found natural objects, or man-made objects that have been discarded – the bits that feel left behind. I’m looking for insights among them.
