In the news: Artist Profile: Printmaker’s work leads to unexpected places

Screen capture of newspaper article - Artist Profile: Printmaker's work leads to unexpected places

Kathy Norcross Watts wrote a Winston-Salem Journal profile piece on my work that’s in the paper today covering a bit of my process and thoughts on a creative life. Here’s a little excerpt from the profile:

Q: How have you evolved as an artist?
Answer: Earlier in my life as an artist I was more concerned with proving skill and technical proficiency. I find that emotion and focus are more important in my work now. I’m more process and concept driven, and I want to experiment and push myself. That’s how real discovery happens.

Q: What is your biggest challenge?
Answer: Maintaining authenticity and allowing myself to be honest in my art process is a challenge. Our instincts are to protect ourselves, hiding our vulnerabilities, but the kind of art that truly reaches people requires letting go of that.

It was a please to talk with Kathy about my work and I hope there’s something in what I shared to inspire others. The Flags of Our Mothers: Prints on paper and fabrics by Woodie Anderson exhibit will be on display at the Elberson Fine Arts Center, Salem College Through April 26th.
