Drawing is something I like to do I'm fearless, I just jump in and go... if its wrong, I erase it or let it go, I explore the shapes the relationships, I carve it out of the paper. The results are dynamic, messy and just once in awhile, with practice, I get a good one.
Sewing is something I struggle with, I admire it and value it. I love fabric and dye and all the possibilities, its an exciting medium for me, however I'm not sure I was given the tools to ever master it according to the "rules". It is a contemplative practice and I am impatient by nature. I tend to wander off, leaving unfinished shards in my wake. My stitches are uneven my seams are lumpy.
By drawing with the fabric I am trying to get the best of both worlds. The bold energy of drawing practice.
The contemplative construction of the sewing process.
