after the first month...

Summer has been pretty crazy so far for me, but one of the most relaxing commitments I have as I'm off from school, I can attribute to the time that I've spent helping Kay Healy out in her studio. She has an amazing space that she shares with her equally talented and awesome HUSBAND (just married on the 20th) Greg Pizzoli. Both are fantastic artists and it's great being able to join them in their space as they both work on stuff together. Kay has a very relaxing atmosphere to all of her work, and I think it comes directly from her process and interest. There are two areas where I feel that I have been growing the most when it comes to helping kay out with her work. But the most fantastic feeling is knowing that I'm being influenced myself as an artist in ways that I have even yet to notice :)

One is sewing. I haven't ever used it in a process to apply to my own work, but after spending time with Kay I can totally get a sense of how it can be a cathartic but productive process. Kay has a very soft sense that comes both literally through in her trapunto-pillow process and in the atmosphere of a very homey, nostalgic sense of her work.

The other is screen printing. A process I had never before been familiar with, I had only dreamed about being comfortable with the process. But after working with Kay I have discovered many things about the process that I both had anticipated, and some things that were surprising to me indeed. One surprise was just the simple fact of how much of a process it really is! I quickly came to realize the expense and need for a specific space to do effective screen printing at all.
