2004Frances Fields Retrospective
A Life of Art
Memories of Frances Fields from written material
"My hair is gray, and my face has lots of wrinkles, but I do feel young at heart. I had eleven children and raised ten -- so I had to keep up with them for many years. I always loved art, but until I moved to Prescott in the early 1960's I hadn't done anything since high school.
when Yavapai College first opened in 1969 with Ed Branson as its only art instructor, I enrolled immediately and have taken a variety of art classes over the ensuing years. My first paintings were pretty awful, but at the time I thought they were great because I was finally doing something I had been looking forward to for many years.
When I discovered collage and watercolor/collage, I felt I'd found the medium that best suited me. I like the process of collage==moving elements of a composition around until they suit me. I have recently begun to weave, as well, something I have long wanted to try. Prescott has been a happy place for me because it allowed me to pursue a dream.
Before I moved to Prescott in 1979, responding to art had been an important facet of my life. Gallery-hopping in New York City, discussing art at the Cedar Tavern, and having paintings transform strange places into familiar one--all added color to my life."
