The Modern Maker

Branching out

I've talked a bit about this on my Facebook page (just look up The Modern Maker there, you'll find me). I am exploring the idea of unity of my work right now. Because my creativity is so diverse, I have spent a great deal of energy dividing my focus so that each of my creative paths was separate from the rest, for the most part.

Now though, I'm finding it very difficult to keep up with all the posting and various pages that I have to manage because of that choice. This separation has evolved organically over the past decade, but now it seems like they should start coming together. I have focused on the concept of "voice" in my work and I'm finding that I can't express myself fully as an artist while trying to keep everything separate.

This Website is well designed to keep everything in one place, but organized. That won't change. What will begin to happen is that you'll see more posts on this blog about the various creative pursuits that I follow. From fine art to sculpture, to fashion to personal growth through creating.

I hope you enjoy the shift, and I hope it inspires you to speak and create with your whole being instead of keeping everything separate.

ART IS IN YOU, OBJECTS ARE ITS EXPRESSION, NO MATTER WHAT THEY ARE.
