Drawing and painting where I started. Egon Scheile's artworks - angular hands - stretching fingers, fascinating. He took colours and muted them. Shades of personality peeked through. I see people differently, make them my way. I want movement - even unnatural movement. We are what we want to be. Large, small, bright, dark. My ladies dance, walk, move, twist. No two alike.
China - a huge step, amazing honour, sculpting 3 metres tall, faces watching. Positive feedback. Translating to people who once were my people. Feeling part of a huge population. Artists and artworks. Never stop. Never want to stop.
