Happy Zone Artist Statement
I look at this show as a homecoming. Not only is it a mini retrospective of the work I’ve created over the past 10 years, it’s my way of thanking the community that encouraged me to be an artist
I come from a family of artists. It was something we just did. My mom and gramma always had projects for me to do. I made paintings, created “rock sculptures”, and pushed sequins into styrofoam.
Many people don’t realize that my first “serious” art classes where at the old Art Guild. Lillian Ruben was my ceramic teacher. She was so encouraging. She treated us like artists, even this dorky middle schooler in the adult class. I remember great conversations about what Lillian was making. She made art making seem like it was just what people did..how they lived their lives.
