“As a longtime journalist, I recognized at midlife that words have their limit. If I could draw an idea....or make it in clay....I could not only look at it but share it with you, and with those whose books I cannot read, whose language I cannot speak.
Ideas for me arrive from outer space. If they eventually do not go away and demand visibility, I become like a novice car mechanic. I make up the parts as I go along, trying to invent for you an innovative ride worth your precious time. Each car comes out almost ok. So, like a child, I try another one, just so I can SEE it.... plus see if you respond and want to talk with me, sharing an experimental ride.
My color choices? DNA instinctual. I never knowingly choose one. My ancestors, long ago, arranged to do that for me ahead of time.
Overall, it’s not the product at the end of my production line that excites me. It’s if my product reaches you, in silence, enabling both of us, in that moment, to share the joy of existence itself, from a mutual point of view.” -Jacquelyn Thunfors
