I describe myself as an artist/artisan, it’s not a career or hobby for me it’s very much a state of being. If I’m not drawing, painting or sculpting I’m sewing. Even my career in computing was highly creative, a program made of nested, subroutines with minimalist code and a smooth flow was a thing of great beauty to me. This is probably the thing that kept me going during the artistic tumbleweed era between early twenties and late thirties, where I only had sporadic art indulgences, whilst building a career and family.In artistic circles it is necessary to brand oneself for commercial success, much in the same fashion as…well fashion. Having a recognisable ouvre, genre, style, medium from which everyone can identify you is your ‘unique selling point’. Unfortunately I haven’t really got one…because I can’t quite settle to any one thing creatively. I have had mild flirtations (acrylics, pastels, the Bargue method) and full on, no holds barred passions (oils, stone carving, clay sculpture) and the long term relationships, my comfy slippers:- drawing, watercolours and sewing. One of my favourite authors is Robert Heinlein…the second most quoted man after Einstein…and my favourite quote is: “specialization is for insects”Christine
