Last year I was reintroduced into the world of the altered book when I joined Sarah's Homegirl Walkabout and now I can't get enough. Working in the book drops me down into my heart space where I create deeply and spontaneously with paint, collage, words, glitter and markers. My book is a safe and sacred container that holds my entire world in its pages.
As I continue to work in this way with process painting and in altered books, I feel the previously neglected and discarded pieces of myself coming home. Process art feels like a call out to those orphaned pieces, announcing a place has been created for them and it's safe to return.
I look forward to sharing this way of creating with folks in my home studio, on-site workshops and in conjunction with process painting. If this way of creating has intrigued you, take a peek at Nectar's workshop schedule for the options we have and will continue to add throughout the year!
