The Artist’s Way

Once upon a time there was a woman who tried her best to be good and to make everyone around her feel happy. But as life occurs on life’s terms, events happened that were beyond her, making her feel lost, out of control, and not at all happy.

At her lowest point, desperate for anything that would alter her dejection, she found a new way of approaching her world called The Artist’s Way. Along with Beth, Cathy, Janet, Sheri, Sue, Susan, Terri and Zara, she made the commitment to write regularly in her Artist’s Pages, go out by herself to explore the universe, and work to expose the unique creativity hidden deep within her.

From that time forth, she grew in leaps and bounds. With the structure and support of her Artist’s Way group, she began to venture into unknown territories. She made new friends. She began to create innovative art that could support her financially. She forged a new path of writing as a creative outlet. She taped into the scale of emotions to blend with her one tone of happiness. She laughed and cried; danced and sang; listened and shared; sewed and wrote.

When the initial twelve weeks ended, the group made a commitment to stay in touch and so they have over fifteen years of ups and downs, ins and outs, around and through committed to all that a creative life offers and so much more.

Pittsburgh-based fiber artist, Louise Silk, creates art that combines aesthetics and functionality with meaning and memories. From the influence of a 1972 MS Magazine article to the current SILKDENIM label, her quilt experiences culminate in a display of her particular capacity to use her patchwork skills to piece together just about anything into an aesthetic meaningful whole.
