Starting with a selection of five or six yarns, I begin to crochet. After a few stitches, the hook and yarn seem to take on a life of their own. From those first several yarns, I continue to add others spontaneously, as the work takes on its unique shape. The warm and sensuous hand carved wooden hooks I use develop their own rhythm as the colors and textures of the fabric combine to create shapes and designs that express my enthusiasm and passion for life. Free Form is a perfect match for my love of new adventures and new ideas.
The opportunity to participate in an International Free Form Challenge immediately following the CGOA conference gave me an opportunity to strengthen the relationships I made while in California while making new ones on-line. It also stretched me artistically, challenging me to change my approach to a project and to think in a new way about the work I do.
