And from the beginning
Welcome to my blog,
People use blogs for many different reasons and I have given some thought as to how I will utilize this blog. As an artist and a designer I realize that it is through our history of choices in our careers as in life that define our progress. So it is here in this forum that I have decided to chronicle my pitfalls, successes , and everything in between. A designers diary so to speak. If for no other reason but to keep myself accountable to my efforts and to record my own personal path to learn from.
In today’s post I will embed a link to a recent interview I completed with another blogger. The interview will get you up to speed in cliff note version of what it is that I have been up to in the last ten years. This opportunity came to me through an initial social media contact from Facebook whom has now become a respected colleague and friend. Her name is Lynne Bruning. Her textile and design work are some of the best I have seen.
As a designer it is important to have visibility within your community. While social media is an incredible tool it is just that. The real relationships come from human interaction and the infrastructure of support that these relationships will provide are foundational to your cause. Also having others around you who are experiencing the same challenges can broaden the sounding board of solutions and provide the occasional shoulder to cry on when frustration gets the better of you.
