From the pen of Janis at paintbox who lives in the San francisco Bay Area and is a painter, printmaker and textile designer with a refreshingly pared down way with words and images and a (seemingly paradoxical) defining richness of thought and responsiveness distilled into all she does. Sending a warm hello to Janis! This drawing from her kitchen was posted 13.10.09
Launched May 1st, 2009 with a tentative start... this blog evolved into a space to bring things I'm curious about or fascinated with whilst adapting to life in a new city, a new direction with my work and in the online realm. Early on postings were frequent and wide-ranging in focus. Attention slowly spread to new online engagements as ideas developed and formats trialled to extend those ideas. However, this blog has always remained at the centre of all that followed ...the conversations, journeys and glimpses into creative worlds generated here have long enriched my days beyond all imagining and I return always to pick up the thread with gratitude for the experience and for those who've passed through, perhaps joined up or stopped to converse!
