I’ve not made many posts about what goes on inside my studio yet, but I did promise I would. And something this week has inspired me to share with you the loveliness of gathering your words and making them into sculptures about you…

For some reason my own creative process seems to be not very conducive to getting blogged… I’m either whizzing along so fast that I don’t get time to take note or write it down it, or up against hurdles which for me are always other things that get in the way of creating or being in the studio – and a distinct lack of time. (Also not very conducive to blogging).
