Just as the sage grouse dances in circles, that sacred spiral sometimes applies to my own work. Thus the symbol of the nautilus.
At this phase I have returned to the studio to work independently, doing freelance art direction, graphic design, and illustration. Autonomy and flexibility have many benefits, yet the challenge of meeting monetary needs is sometimes met on a close margin.
As an artist I am thrilled to move into mentoring and teaching! The next adventure includes offering oil painting classes to small groups. Especially gratifying are folks who have never painted before and always wanted to give it a try.
Full circle: back in the art studio, a bit messy, with a lot more freedom!
