Reestablishing myself as a designer after working without using a computer for a few years has proven to be the most challenging and yet rewarding experience.
Writing allows me to release the conversations within that might prohibit me from moving forward with an idea. Making designs by hand, often requires a different skill set of focus, attention and courage.
“Without graphics, I design using words, grammar and textural cultural perspectives that offer my audience a chance to 'recondition' the patterns in their thinking and engage in creative and alternative points of view.”
"I don't want to spend so much time looking at myself that I forget who I am" (8/5/2009). "Now, I want to see who I am and not forget what I look like" (2/18/2019).
Where I Am
Working here, yet steering clear,
Not knowing how I stared an ambition into me.
With graphic words and thoughts permeating,
I shimmer actualities to adorn me;
Making hues again as dogs bark, city-life sparks and leaves float,
Offering me a chance at something new, yet classically old,
And fresh perspectives lingering in notes,
Symbolic symbolism’s creating heavens; To cherish all that is within,
As my opposite seems knotty and I can no longer tell the difference,
As to which labyrinth I find myself circling in;
When thoughts leave me to wonder, See where I am and wonder again where my head should be,
As I be doing, as I am,
Moved to be still, passionately.
