Artist's Statement:
Carolyn Pettigrew. I enjoy creating “things” – including prints and hand-crafted photographs. There is sometimes a debate about what is craft and what is art. I believe there is a wonderful crossover and in not being too prescriptive about classifying oneself in any particular genre. The result is “works on paper” that are pleasing to oneself and hopefully to others as well.
