Revised Artist Statment

Today, I was introduced to Luann Udell's blog through Cynthia Morgan's blog. And Luann really got me thinking that I need to revise my artist statement. Not an easy thing.

I've gone through a number of iterations and I'm to a point where I feel like I'm ready for others to give me feedback. So here it is and please, let me know what you like, don't like, does it make sense? I'm hoping it is a good starting point to convey who I am as an artist. Thanks!

The trees
The mountains
The flowers

The sun
The clouds
The stars

These elements are the driving forces in my work.

As an only child, one of my favorite pastimes on a warm summer day was laying in a soft blanket of grass, looking up at the slow moving clouds as they drifted across the sky. I searched for shapes in those big fluffy clouds, finding the most unusual collection of things.

Today, my imagination still finds those shapes and I am awestruck by the natural beauty of this world. My work is inspired by nature, realized in glass.

The Light.

I am a glass artist.

This is great. Will you add more?

I must confess, of the two versions this is my favorite. I specially like how you mention one by one what inspires you, I think it describes your work very well and the phrase almost at the end: "My work is inspired by nature, realized in glass"... Genius!. Now you got me thinking about changing mine...

Thanks Marilyn. I actually did a bit of a consolidation of this one and my second one. The updated statement is on the website now and will be subject to more revisions, I'm sure. Please check out Luann's blog as she has a wealth of information on this subject. :)
