STacey

I have no formal art education. After creating a lot as a young person I completely lost touch with this side of myself for two decades. Now in my 40s as a single parent with a full time job, art has become a way of understanding the reasons behind this disconnection and fostering a new intimacy with existence. I often make art out of failed pieces that have destroyed and things I salvage from daily life. In this way, this process is redemptive and shows me that there is much meaning the materials of my life despite the regrets. Everything is in fact, exactly as it should have been.
