living as an artist

this new year will look slightly different for me. i will no longer have the tag line response to the frequent question ‘what do you do with yourself?’ of ‘I’m a teacher’. this year i won’t be sharing creative energy with my young students and exploring idea development in the classroom forum. i, am an artist. this little thing called wood|GLASS is now my main job.

i will miss the student interaction and the opportunity to work in printmaking, clay and paint all in one day. but i hope to stretch my knowledge and skills in my favourite medium, glass. and produce more than i ever have, with the purpose of living contentedly in the knowledge i am using the gifts i have received to share beauty and truth in the world. we need more beauty and truth.

i hope you enjoy the ride. i will keep you posted.
