Drake resides in Colorado and is the "leader" of our troupe.
A bonafide "artist-at-large", she makes her living these days
creating beautiful screenprinted items, including women's apparel and
tote bags using her own hand-drawn designs. Not only is Linda talented,
she is also a lovely person. I hope that I will get to meet her in person
theme was "what moves you?" Uncovering what is inside of us
is always a challenge. What moves us is sometimes so obscure that we don't
even realize that it's a motivating factor. For me, it's my emotions.
I have always been a very emotive person, and have made the majority of
my choices based on how things "felt" (though not always for
the best, I suppose). I'm also "sensitive" to others' emotions,
often picking up on things that they project. It can be overwhelming but
it is also a gift. I know exactly what a "gut" feeling means...
I get them all the time. If only I listened to my gut more often (instead
of just feeding it too much chocolate).
thoroughly enjoyed working on this doll and journal. With each new project
there is an awakening within me, both creatively and spiritually. The
journal work started with a pencil sketch, which I then scanned and then
altered in Photoshop and printed out each emotion on photo paper.
for these came during a vulnerable time for me, while still mourning my
mother's passing, and contending with some emotionally charged issues
with my sister. This piece helped me tap into a deeper part of myself,
and essentially helped me heal.
