My sweet sister in law gave me the starfish. She told me she\s excited to see what I create with it. I love the under the sea theme so it was fun for me to create this piece. I started with white silk that I then painted and added rubbings. I also did some needle felting and stitching. Finally I added some beads.
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.
