This a simple book to create. I have made many of them in the past. The one pictured here I made in Sandra Spagnuolo's workshop this past weekend. It is a piece of plain paper painted on both sides. It was folded and the star shapes were cut. Sandra gave us random strips of sentences cut from a typing book. We were then asked to put together a poem from the words in the strips. It was so fun.
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.
