When I started out with the idea for the Confidently Lost collection, I was in an interesting & dark place. I read these love letters from great artists and leaders over & over. Beethoven. Napoleon. Lord Byron. My heart wrenched in the turmoil that is the love that they must have felt. The passion that these men freely shared with the loves of their lives was now “audible” and right there in black & white. Who doesn’t long for that passion?
I am an introvert and have found that I am most comfortable expressing myself through the written word....more specifically calligraphy and hand lettering (no surprise there...). I decided to create a collection of mirrors that would exude a presence (70" x 30") and be filled with the love letters of great artists and leaders. I used their words as a view of the madly, intense love that I wanted to receive in return. And then I used calligraphy to place them on mirrors. This has become an extremely personal and passion-filled calligraphy project for me.
