The ability to be inspired, and in turn, inspiring, is a cycle that works its magic so well in the presence of community. My idea to create pussy paintings developed after viewing pussy paintings by other artists over the past few years. The theme sank into my sub-conscious, and when it was ready to be looked at and explored, it exploded into my awareness. And then, after making several pussy paintings myself, I noticed pussies popping up in others’ work, and even had a friend tell me that I inspired her in this way. This thread of connection thrills me.
I don’t seek to be inspired or inspiring, but when either happens, I sense more meaning and oneness with the world.
