Sandra Sawyer, Tifton Member Since August 2011 Artist Statement Who am I? What am I? Intelligent, ridiculous, artistic, selfish,loving, generous, cautious, wary, creative, lovely, fragile, stylish (in my own personal style), one of a kind, strange, mystic, slightly insane, possibly eccentric, loved by amazing people, teacher, quiet, musical, inquisitive, impatient, frustrating, childlike, full of wonder, quixotic, imaginative, dreamer, planner, spender, delicate, shopper, painter, highly sensitive,trapped, poet, moody, full of contradictions, mysterious, ashamed, hopeful, optimist, perceptive, empathetic, alive, arrogant, messy, unorganized, and even more, of course. I have crawled and clawed my way out of a dark and muddy pit, embedded with shards of broken glass, I balance on the edge still, but I create ribbons of butterflies and swirls of violet edged fire. The wind whispers my name and lifts my hair with kisses, seducing me.
