Repeat.

Repetitive, meditative, at times obsessive, but always constant, each person has their repertoire of habits and tendencies that develop from a very young age – their go-to in times of creativity, thought processing or stress. The unconscious habit that flows from our bodies into the smallest of movements or tics, that helps free us to process information more easily or to expend excess energy.
With the ReDoodle series, I wanted to return to the artwork that comes most naturally to me, and to explore different ways of incorporating that into my current art practice and to simplify it in an aesthetically pleasing way. I also wanted to share this natural and very satisfying way of expressing my creativity with others in the hopes that it may encourage someone else to use the doodle as the therapeutic, useful and fun tool that it is, acknowledging its importance in our development and ongoing functioning. Re-visiting and re-doing the Original Doodle.
