Silk pieces like below will be on display along with silk and glass, soldered pendants, matching earrings, silk and wool bracelets, felted rocks and some brand new canvas and silk pendants. Stop by the DCCA to see this work through the month of March. I'll post more pictures soon.

Inspiring Artist

This video of artist Christine Sun Kim's work amplifies my own take on creativity. I don't want to tell you too much because there's a little surprise.

Todd Selby x Christine Sun Kim on Nowness.com.

I really love the way she thinks, trying all these different approaches to give sound form and color. She uses sound as a tool to make art, like artists use a camera or a brush. It makes me think about how often we take our senses for granted.

Creativity Workshop

Happy New Year! 2012 is going to be a great year. I've picked a date for the next Creativity Workshop, Sat. February 11, 2012, 11-5pm, at the Buzz Ware Village Center in Arden.. The time is 11-5 so that everyone can take Kerry Orr's yoga class first. I highly recommend Kerry's class on Saturday's normally 10-11:30, but on Feb. 11th it will be 9-10:30 so as not to conflict with my workshop. Thanks Kerry.

Here's the details about the workshop and a video that describes the musician Goyte's creative process.

Through guided exercises in creative writing, movement, painting and mixed media collage open up to fearlessly enter new territory and discover your authentic self-expression. Walk away reenergized and inspired to tackle your projects and life more creatively.
No experience required.
$65.00 All supplies provided.

This is a cool video I stumbled upon. The musician Gotye talks about the making of his recent album and his process sounds like what I teach in my workshop. An artist doesn't arrive at a finished masterpiece just one day after their morning coffee. It's a process of collecting bits and pieces, playing around with them, discovering new things about them and arranging them anew. To do this you need to welcome this process into your everyday life. The results will amaze and surprise you.

Here's a very cool music video of his using stop motion animation.
