Karen Erdmann, Port Orchard, WA Member Since May 2008 Artist Statement Today I am a daughter, a mother and a grandmother. Today I make art from photographs, from fiber and with words. Today I care for my sheep, I tend my herbs and rest from my job. I have been a nurse for 35 years (still am) and an artist and writer for 25 years. I love words, the way they flow and then stop, flow again and then pour out. Sometimes they require form and and I learn their form. Sometimes they just come present without any form and I let them be as they wish. I am old enough to learn from my journey and young enough to still be passionate about learning.
