A Peek Inside the Diary of an Artist

With the snow forecast I hope to have a day or two up my sleeve to work on pieces for my show.

I thought I'd share some pages from my visual diary. I almost never draw a design. I find the end result is stiff and prefer the spontaneity of composing with materials on the studio table. I use my diary as a means of working out technical problems and recording ideas for altering and manipulating parts.

I tend to draw small, to fit in a lot per page so I don't have to keep flipping over to find the note I'm looking for. These are stream of consciousness thoughts, quick sketches that give me a list of techniques to draw on as I compose the medals. 

A glimpse into the creative process.
