The Name: WIP is a common acronym for “Work In Progress“.
WIP Arts (.org) is a curated corner cupboard for the world-motivated, self-initiated creative pursuits (including rants and none-too-lofty ramblings) of WIPper #1, Jenni (me).
This would probably be a good place for an “Artist’s Statement” but to be honest, as much as I have always enjoyed a passionate, deeply caring, (sometimes sordid,) relationship with words, there are few things less futile than my trying to wrestle and cajole them into saying nice things about me in a ‘publicly palatable’ way.
Suffice it to say, my ‘mission’ is to create/make/conjure things. Things that I sincerely hope express something of my own human self. And in my wildest dreams, things that have the power to affect someone else. If I encourage a furrowed brow, a twinkly eye, or a sly smirk, well, that counts for something.
I want to hear from artists and art enthusiasts – ANY type of art or creative pursuits – to find out what you love, what you hate, and if you want to contribute/collaborate. Join me on Facebook, follow along with Twitter, check out my photos on Instagram, and please feel free to email with any questions or suggestions.
WIP is an inclusive project. ;)
P.S. You may have noticed that while this site contains a rather small sampling of my “things” it’s a varied assortment. The simple reason being, that as seemingly boundless as my interests and thoughts may be, there just aren’t enough hours in a day! Over the next little while I’ll be focusing on getting some ducks in a row and then, my friends, I’ll be stepping up production. Hopefully, you’ll be a willing accomplice!
