Susan Bradshaw

Artist Statement


I am a maker.
A maker of things.
A maker of happenings.
A maker of opportunities.

 I am most happy when I am making.
Making gives me joy.
Making gives me happiness.
Making gives me completeness.
Making gives me opportunities.

As a maker I continually explore.
New making ideas.
New making materials.
New making ways.

I am weaving time when I make.
I interlace time and pattern.
I interlace pattern and repeat.
I interlace my internal images with my media when I make.

When asked about this making need I give
To my Mother.
To my Mother's Mother.
To my Mother's Mother's Mother.
Beyond that I can not trace.
I imagine the need goes back to the roots of time.
