Early on I decided I would look at the idea of the changes and transformations that artists perform, as they turn fleeting images into more permanent form, and as they use humble materials to spark ideas.

|The web done in beads.|
As an artist, when do you stick with the tried and true? When do you step further from your comfort zone onto a new path? How does your art transform the way you see yourself?
I was trying to portray an artist's sketchbook or bulletin board for a project, with 3-D items and mini-quilts, melded into one giant page. I could happily continue work on my piece for weeks. You can read more about how I put it together here.
I am really enjoying looking at how everyone else interpreted this theme, and the choices they made in portraying Change/Transformation.
