It has suddenly dawned on me…..that I prefer painting to making books! Should have been pretty obvious cos I spend so much time painting the paper before using the painted paper to make a book.
Why not just paint onto canvas and voilà…done. I suppose I like to work things out…..always taking the long way round!
I remember painting paper and thinking to myself….why cut it up…maybe I should collage it onto canvas…..then I’m like nahhhh….snip snip snip ….another book!
I love playing with paint…..and I suppose all that time playing with paper in the studio is really panning out now.
