Over the course of 2017, I had the opportunity of viewing the sketchbooks of some of the artists in my network and I got really inspired!!! I have never worked out of a sketchbook but I saw many different ways to use one and felt it as another way for artists to Grow, experiment, and lock down ideas.
So I decided to start my very first sketchbook in 2018! Since I have a thing about collections and I also love a challenge, I thought I would use my sketchbook to start a new body of work by doing one sketch a day for 365 days and see what I come up with, what I will learn, and what kind of Growth I will see in my art practice if I put my head down on a daily basis for a year.
I am currently on day 8 and I have already learned a lot! I am very excited about this experience and have started to look forward to my daily practice. My goal is to create a body of work to do my largest solo show in 2019 along with an art book to go with the collection called “Wink!!!” It’s super fun to watch the Growth of my sketchbook and I will share sneak peaks over the year, so stay tuned and I hope you will enjoy the process as much as I enjoy creating it. xoxo
