A friend recently said she was struggling to find her artistic voice. This is part of what I told her about voice and the conversation with techniques :
“It is easy to get side tracked by trying new things and trying to decide how they fit into that conversation. For me, that’s what trying new things is all about.
It has taken me 6 years to get to this point and I have to constantly say NO when I feel something new calling that doesn’t fit in. I’m not always sure what the conversation is or if there is just a debate going on or who will win!”
This was the second time recently that someone referenced that I have found my voice. I always wondered as many artists do just where it got lost in translation. But I see it in each piece of fabric or brush of paint. It is like a light went on and I hope it doesn’t burn itself out as I follow it down this path.
