Biography

Lorette is an independent artist and writer in Toronto, Canada. Contact her at ideafountain at hotmail dot com.

“Nothing is original. Steal from anywhere that resonates with inspiration or fuels your imagination. Devour old films, new films, music, books, paintings, photographs, poems, dreams, random conversations, architecture, bridges, street signs, trees, clouds, bodies of water, light and shadows. Select only things to steal from that speak directly to your soul. If you do this, your work (and theft) will be authentic. Authenticity is invaluable; originality is non-existent. And don’t bother concealing your thievery—celebrate it if you feel like it. In any case, always remember what Jean-Luc Godard said: ‘It’s not where you take things from—it’s where you take them to.’"
-Jim Jarmusch

Thanks a million, Alan- I certainly hope you find some nuggets of inspiration to prompt you. Does this link work?(The second one should no problem, it's someone else's mag that I write for). I was certain it was the photos that weren't working but the text that was fine, as that is what works from my desk. Please let me know if you still can't access...I am about to switch blog platforms again- for better or for worse, hopefully for better this time...let me know and I can email the text to you worst come to worst.

Just tried to find your Basquiat article, says the page no longer exists. I'd really like to read it.

Hi Lorette. Thanks so much for your comments. I admire your work (& will probably steal from it!!!, as per your Jarmusch quote). Welcome to Artdoxa. I'm going to check out your Basquiat article.
