This past spring I was feeling an intense desire to return to making art with the simple tools of pen and ink. I have loved making contour drawings from early on, and I wanted, once again, to experience that quality of connection that happens while making them. I love the giving over of my concentration and attention to the other, like that.

I started a Tumblr site: “Exquisite Connection” http://isabelcollinsart.tumblr.com/ and have been uploading drawings for a few months now. It’s bliss…
