Claudia McGill makes handbuilt sculptures and tiles in clay, paints in acrylics, and creates collages and mixed media art. She also does other things – writes poetry, runs, mows the grass, and reads a lot. Loud sudden noises bother her, and she’s not that fond of candy.
Why does this blog exist? You can ask her – but here’s what she said in the first post:
I came to making art later in life, and it’s more than my other self by now – my paints, papers, clay, glazes, and brushes are familiar friends and essential to me. I do some art pretty much every day in one form or another, and now I wonder how I got along before I stumbled into this way of life.
I enjoy the process of making art. Once it’s done, it goes out into the world and then it belongs, in every way, to someone else. But it leaves behind the memory of its creation, the satisfaction in doing so, and the motivation to repeat the process in one form or another.
My motto is,
“Give it a try and see what happens”.
