I made this small crazy quilt thinking that it would be a birthday card for a friend. The friend is a real professional and an extreme perfectionist. I concluded that it was not good enough to give to her. It's a bit wonky. I made it into a small book for myself instead. I think it's a darn shame that perfection does not come easily or naturally to me but I have learned to accept it. Sometimes good enough is good enough. And done is better than perfect.
I color copied the crazy quilt and used the copies as end papers inside the book. I quite like the way that turned out.
As a self-taught artist, I have developed a practice of experimenting with my own ideas, which seem boundless. Curiosity and research continually drive me daily. For over 20 years I have taken an explorative approach towards art making. My optimistic approach to life is represented in my art as I find beauty in even the most difficult circumstances. This beautiful, imperfect life I live is meant to be shared through my creativity, resourcefulness and curiosity. I hope to influence my audience with joy.
