This year I am stitching on photos of rust and pealing paint. I really enjoying having a preplanned idea. Of course I don't know what I am going to stitch each month but I do have the base. A heart made perfect sense to me for this month. I really like the idea of cutting a little something away from the photo. I may have to try that again. Thanks for looking!
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.
