Yesterday I met with fibre artist Kathleen Long of Birchblanket Workshops to work on a collaboration combining my birch trees with her quilting techniques and I'm very excited to seeing the outcome of this project. Collaboration is one of my favorite things. As a working artist, there are typically many hours spent in solitude so I miss those times when I can connect and feed off of another creative spirit.
I also love those conversations that amble and connect from one point to another, one interesting topic which leads to another...effortless and enlightening. That's how I feel every time I meet Kathleen. And her vision is incredible, inspiring. I could chat with her for hours.
I'm currently working on my third piece in this ROOTED series...this time a triptych and this time with a focus on summer and new growth. Excited to see the direction it travels.
