A Few Thoughts on My Notebooks

I Started my notebook project after Jack and Fiona were born. I had worked on two previously, but the form was slightly different. I glued the paintings onto the pages, used the notebooks more of a place to house a collection of work. When I started working on my notebooks this time, I decided to use the paper in the books,  use both pages as one piece, playing off one page to create the other. It was exciting being able to go into my studio and make art and write while the babies were taking a nap. When I work on my notebooks I am free. I work spontaneously and intuitively. The whole collection of books and pages is a giant map of ideas and memories.
