It’s taken four years… At the beginning of this year I didn’t think I would finally get there. But then it happened sooner than I thought.
Klick the book below and you’ll be taken to a preview of the thing.
Volume 2 of my shrine documentation. Yep, this is what *I* get out of the shrining shenanigans. I let go of all of the shrines, happily so, because before they go on their way, I take pictures. And then I put them into a book. Like most artists, I don’t actually pull those books out of my bookcase and flick through the pages every day, admiring my handiwork. Quite the opposite – it’s always slightly painful because the self-criticism never stops. But having the book means that a little part of my work remains in my hands. I have just ordered the book to be printed, and I can’t wait for it to arrive. If you are curious, you can see Volume 1 HERE, btw.
Thank you for supporting me in my ‘hobby’. I still love making these. And I see a lot of purple in my future 💜!
