After a quarter of a century of playing alongside all ages in a variety of creative settings, around the globe, Jodi is settling into a period of home studio practice, determined discipline, and robust art exploration. There will be fiber, there will be paper and there will be ink. Wait for it…and surely, inspiration from some smashed cast-off found on the ground.
My work is primarily abstract in nature, with some leanings towards representational imagery. In my thought process when working, I tend to reduce drawn imagery down to simplified forms in a more calculated, geometric, formal arrangement. Utilizing a ‘dirty brush’ mentality has led me to play with color in unexpected combinations, and loosened up my perceptions of what could occur if I just left the room. Inspiration is everywhere when you stay awake to observe it.
