This is mulberry paper, cheese cloth, and metallic thread all stuck together. It's kind of like paper mache. The little purple disc is basically a dimensional piece done in the same paper mache style. I stitched it onto the base with metallic thread. It\'s going to be a page in a circle journal that I am making. I think it's better in real life than the photo but I also think that it's not finished. It needs something else just not sure where to go with it. Unlike the unfinished piece I posted On Sept. 10th I'm not afraid to ruin this one.
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.
