For soooooo long, I wanted a digital SLR and simply abandoned my camera. Instead I used my iPhone to take pics. And now after sooo long…I have grudgingly taken my film SLR out for a spin and I absolutely love it!!! I like this waiting game…not knowing immediately how good or bad a shot is. Not being able to press delete…it’s a new experience after all the immediacy of taking selfies and what not with my phone. So, I’m working them both! But…my SLR is teaching me patience and ‘to see’. I can’t be snap happy…I have got to be sure and (I suppose) that’s a good thing. But for so long, I didn’t see it that way…the whole idea of continuously paying for film and processing….naaaahh! But, I just might be able to work this angle…if I don’t go all snap happy and actually think before I shoot. Next step is finding an open access dark room…(to save on film processing).

Spontaneity is the watchword that informs my art practice. My artwork celebrates the energy of abstract expressionism. 'why not?' underlines my creative process. Forget the box! Its obsolete...it's all about whatever shape you want to throw on that dance floor! The process drives my practice!! For me, work well done is work I have thoroughly enjoyed making...work that has made me think, sweat, cry, scream and come back for more!!! Work that gets my back up; pushes me...gives me cause for doubt. Makes me push in order for 'why not?' to become possible. Boundaries? What boundaries? View all posts by designwithflair
