|we both adore layers, time worn looks, designing things that look vintage|
|we both love textures be it with fabric, paint, papers, stitches|
|there is a gift in seeing with a very detailed eye the beauty that can show up|
|watching a piece transform and sharing the joy together|
|taking the forgotten old, tattered and giving it a new life|
I believe there is magic to be found in the real time that sits in the studio with two people. The talk, the silence, the listening, the finding music we each love and sharing. Seeing how the other works, holds a paint brush, how they think when creating (fast in the process or slow) Timing of art is something few people can explain. Sure there are lots of quotes from really cool people about timing of art - when to know a piece is done. There is freedom, trust and pure love in sharing the experience of handing a piece of art back and forth and trusting the other person to add their energy.
I loved this process with Diana. The days were long and full of discovery and digging in our piles of time loved bits to create together. I am grateful for this time in my life. Rarely do we get to sit and create day after day with someone who we love.
My wish for others is to be brave, fearless and keep opening up your heart, your studio, your table to listen and create with others. It matters.
