Artist Statement - Journal 365
paper, textiles, fiber and stuff
that's what my ART is made of
I am inspired by vintage photos and images
cast-off quits, linens and bluejeans,
I enjoy making new and repurposed projects
with paint, ink, paper, rubber stamps
repurposed fabric, embroidery,
As an emgering mixed-media artist
I continue to explore the conflict between
decorative and useful
new and repurposed
bonniebluedenim is Donna Cook
the portrait image above is made from a photo taken in 1976
of Donna Cook
with a pinhole camera
it has been photo copied and adhered to the journal
and painted over with acrylic paint
it of course does not look like Donna Cook

I think, at a child's birth, if a mother could ask a fairy godmother to endow it with the most useful gift,
that gift would be curiosity."
Man can hardly even recognize the devils of his own creation.
We keep moving forward, opening new doors, and doing new things, because we're curious and curiosity keeps leading us down new paths.
"Hitch your wagon to a star."
Ralph Waldo Emerson
