There was a time
before I started selling my totems....
(before I was brave enough to put them out there)
when I created solely for myself.
The walls of my little studio were lined
with totem after totem
stacked one against the other
their weathered faces watching over me.
I discovered a quote by Wosene Kosrof
which was an Aha! moment for me
He said "The more I go to the studio,
the more I create my spiritual crowd".
I felt strongly that I had created
my own spiritual crowd.
After my first exhibition my studio emptied
It was a time to rejoice
but I also experienced feelings of loss.
Thankfully my work sells quickly.
I am grateful that people feel a connection to my work
and I wouldn't have it any other way.....
but I do miss my spiritual crowd
filling my studio
with their silent chatter.
