I am a craftsperson. I am never as happy as I am when I create something. It can be a scarf, a quilt, a re-touched photo. I like to make things that please other people. Now, is this art? I don’t know. Not really, I suppose.

But I want to reach people by making beautiful things. And I hope reaching people that way is art. Or at least a level of self-expression that can bring me peace and satisfaction. For the next year, I have rented space to see if I can make this dream a reality. Anyone who wants to come along for the ride is welcome, and anyone who’s been there, done that, or has advice, is welcome to share their thoughts with me.
