“Sisters Dancing,” by Marie Jamieson
Marie Jamieson’s Artist’s Statement: Once, I called myself a writer, with gaze averted so as not to see doubt mirrored in the eyes of the receiver and with ears shut to hearing a derisive snicker. Once, I dreamed of being a sculptor, creating a statue for a piazza in Italy, and of being a great painter with artwork hung on a great wall, featured! These are remembered visions as if they might have already been. Now, in this life, at this moment, I dabble at calling myself a crafter, an accidental artist who cannot go a day without attempting to create something that matters.
