From Behind Curtain 3, we are excited to announce that Karen Cameron is about to commence her challenge and will create 30 artworks in 30 days beginning mid July. Karen describes her challenge:
The greatest challenge I can envisage presently is how I can creatively devise cunning ways to construct a 3D environment on the face of the canvas. I will be considering various methods and trust that the imagination will come up with lots of different ways of achieving this. I will be making small 3D figures using clay, felt, fabric, stitch and mixed media and using paint, and drawing materials and who knows what else? My daily work as an Art Therapist in Adult Mental Health can be emotionally draining at times and my artwork helps me connect to the silly, playful and creative part of myself. Humour is an important aspect of my life and my art. The characters that emerge often make me laugh and I hope they will appeal to others as well. I am looking forward to the challenge of creating one piece a day for 30 days. I must admit I feel a little anxiety – is it really possible? …… then the enthusiasm comes back and I am excited again.
