Evolution of me as an artist
I was asked by South Fraser Unitarian church to bring some of my art and talk about how I came to be a textile artist. This is the third time I have spoken to a group about this. Each time I have found it rewarding as my story seems to resonate with many people in the audience. My hope is that the listeners will be inspired to jump into their own creative process in spite of fears and judgments they might have. The preparation for this talk got me reflecting on the reasons why I make art and how I was influenced to get where I am today. I find it interesting that these opportunities to speak have come my way without any search on my part. My mom was my original advocate and then one led to another! In the first photo the welcome hanging on the right was made by my Mom. The picture on the left is mine.

Maureen, I'm excited for you about the speaking opportunities that keep coming your way. I recall you talking about the first one at the time of our UK trip. Should you ever come down this way in the Pacific Northwest, you must let me know. I think the two quilt guilds I belong to would be interested.
