In July, I wrote about my project that is allowing me to move forward by taking a step back. The past several months I have been engrossed in the creative process and having fun! All of this fun has resulted in my first SOLO SHOW which I am about to go hang once I finish with this blog post. Information on the logistics is in the image above.
Those of you that have been following along, realize that I am thrilled to be creating art like I did long ago. I am learning so many new things along the way. Sometimes I am learning a new skill, sometimes I am discovering who I am, and sometimes I am finding out about a past I never knew. These past few months have been all of this and more. While I poured through fashion illustrations from the 1940s and 1950s, I discovered my mother as a young artist. An artist with such vivacity and potential. I've created several collaborations for my Fashion Plate portfolio, and I am eager to continue to create more. I am finding the purpose of my journey at this point in my life. It is to create collaborative pieces with my mother and continue to learn more about her art. It was something that wasn't possible when she was alive for many reasons. But it is possible now, and I plan to make the most of it!
I am hoping you can make it out to Arriva Dolce in the next several weeks to take a look at the beginning of this journey. If not, you can view my website project "Fashion Plate". But keep coming back. There will be many more pieces to come!
