FORWARD MOTION ART

Posted by Forward Motion Art on 2/15/2008
WITH ALL THE ELEMENTS THAT ARE GIVEN TO US IN THIS REALITY WE CALL LIFE,FROM THE PETTY MATERIAL REALMS, TO THE COSMIC REALMS OF UNEXPLAINED FATE, TO CREATIVE THOUGHTS OF A UNIQUE BEING. I HAVE FOUND A KIND OF BALANCE WITH A COLLAGE OF THE THREE. ALL MY LIFE I HAD FELT AN UNEXPLAINED DRIVE TO CREATE WITH MY HANDS. FIRST AS A CHILD DRAWING WAS MY OUTLET,THEN CAME MUSIC.IT WASN'T TILL I WAS 23 YEARS OLD THAT GLASSBLOWING CAME IN TO MY LIFE. THREW THE YEARS I HAVE FOUND MYSELF ENGULFED IN MY WORKS. THRIVING TO TAME THE BEAST TO HAVE TOTAL CONTROL OF THIS MEDIUM. AT THIS POINT IN MY CAREER I HAVE CAME TO A PEACEFUL PLAIN IN LAMPWORKING ,READY TO FULLY EXPRESS MY LIFES WORKS.WITH THIS YEAR AHEAD YOU WILL SEE A MORPHING CHANGE IN MY WORKS THAT I HOPE MORE BEINGS WILL BE INSPIRED WITH. WITH THIS SAID I HOPE TO ALL THAT ARE EXPRESSING THEIR SELVES IN WHICH EVER FORM THAT YOU ARE. PEACE WITH YOU AND YOUR EXPRESSION WITH YOUR ART!
