A good read!

Today I received the link to an e-magazine called Threads.In-fusion. issue 5. I received this because I was asked to write an article for it by the publisher- Dale and Ian Rollerson of The Thread studio.

My article is about the process I used to collect information and ideas for my artwork- in particular the work I made for my most recent solo- Not All Who Wander Are Lost.

If you are interested in the magazine you can purchase it through the website ( click link above). it has a number of great articles. My favourite was one by Jacinta Leischmann who writes about inspiration for art.

to give you a small taster of my article it begins......

by Sally Darlison
Journeys are the focus of my art work. Both physical and metaphorical. I am an observer of people and places. Pattern, colour and behaviour fascinate me. Teaching has taught me to observe and process my observations. I watch people and how they interact with each other and the world around them, often creating stories about what I think they may be doing or where they may be going. I like to make links between people and ideas. Part of the process of art creation for me is finding these links, or making links - a little like a story teller. In fact, I see my art work as story telling. The story can be read in many ways though, dependent on the viewer’s perspective or experience.
I have always loved to tell stories, embellishing the truth ( just a little) for the sake of a laugh or added drama.............

If you want any more of this you will need to check out the E-mag.  

Well, it's back to the paper work for me, another article to compose, exhibitions to enter, lessons to plan and I'm on holidays- from school anyway, so maybe a little relaxing as well. 
Have a great day!!
