My career as an artist has been very diverse and has evolved in a number of arenas. I started out as a serious painting student. I thought that I would spend my artistic life as a painter creating what was termed "fine art". I was uncomfortable with that terminology because it seemed to indicate that art that didn't fall within the fine art realm was somewhat less than fine and maybe even somewhat less than art. I began to question just what I wanted my art to look like and as importantly what kind of artistic impact I was after. I seriously examined my feelings about art itself and decided that the kind of art I wanted to produce wouldn't even be considered real ART by some people. I examined the Art vs Craft question closely. I certainly didn't want to do my talent a disservice by devoting my efforts to a lesser path. Some of my colleagues were critical of my direction, but by that time I was on a mission to respond to the call of the most ancient roots from which all the arts spring. All of the arts, after all rooted in magic. I came to the conclusion that ,"Art was Art". I then withdrew from any debates and turned my attention to my own art and the role that I saw it playing across any boundaries, real or imagined. I have never regretted that decision. I am eternally grateful for the freedom it has afforded me as I have devoted myself to the creation of beautiful things. A magazine editor with whom I worked on many projects with over an extended period of time said this about me, "Elizabeth is an artist. But, unlike many artists, she is secure enough to allow her art to appear in a project magazine."
My willingness to do this may set me apart from some other artists, it's true. The joy I have received from being able to share my philosophy that relooks at the continuum between "fineArt" and the so called "crafts" gives me hope for the entire art world.
"The Finn's World Project", my most current venture into this realm is intended to merge art (both beautiful and edible) with a life philosophy of making the world a better place by doing "what I can with what I have from where I am". This project becomes more of a success with every bite! Please open this PDF in Adobe Reader for best viewing and access to an optional link included in the text.
I cannot imagine missing an opportunity to give my visitors a free gift. Here's a vegetarian recipe for a wonderfully spicy, low fat potato dish. Make sure that you make more than you'll eat at one sitting because cold leftovers make the best home fries ever!
