Holly Fay - Childhood Art Making

The first memories I have of making art happened when I was really young, and I would walk home from school, and I would collect things on my way. I’d collect leaves, and collect paper. I’d stop and notice things like the colours on a gasoline slick on the top of a water puddle. And so all these things would be in my head, and I’d take these little things that I found home, and I would cut them and arrange them. And it wasn’t until a long time after that I even realized that was art making because that isn’t the kind of art making that you understand to be art when you’re a kid.
