Question 2

Soft is the Heart of a Child (III)
June 2007

What makes you enjoy being an artist? What makes your artwork so special?

I believe we are all created for a wonderful purpose, as written in Psalm 139.

13 For you created my inmost being;
you knit me together in my mother's womb.
14 I praise you because I am fearfully and wonderfully made;
your works are wonderful,
I know that full well.
15 My frame was not hidden from you
when I was made in the secret place.
When I was woven together in the depths of the earth,
16 your eyes saw my unformed body.
All the days ordained for me
were written in your book
before one of them came to be.

I enjoy working as an artist because it feels like my perfect job-fit. When I’m working, sometimes I will jump around because I’m s-o happy with the way the colours are! I’ve never felt that way about any other work I’ve done…

5 You hem me in behind and before,
and you lay your hand upon me.

I think what makes an artwork special is when people connect with it. Like when people buy a painting. There will be something about the painting that made them remember a time that has passed…
