I just wasn't happy with my bead journal project. I had to do some more beading on it. Often I feel that a piece isn't finished. I am always learning and growing and that causes me to think of better ways to do things. There are times when I just call a piece finished because I am tired of working on it or I have lost interest.
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.
