You never know when gifts like these will drop into your life.
Thank you Carrie Baker Mangoubi for taking time to research fun events for us to do together, while visiting you in Chicago some time ago. We went to an art workshop, when I visited you some time ago. We were instructed to scribble and use ALLLLL the pen ink onto our 8x10 paper as a welcome exercise. This activity was a pivotal moment, the inspiration for my mark making series, claiming that I AM in fact A MARK-MAKER. A conceptually loaded expression.
The series that followed "ME" illustrates deep thoughts that need to be released but hard to decipher to the eye. Personal stories or interpretations may be conjured from the viewer. I utilized the same fast paced flowing lines of the above exercise, now cursive writing, layers upon layers, to add meaning to this.
