I bet I have stitched a million french knots over my life time! I feel that I am a pro at them. I am not so sure that I am all that innovative with them though. I used them to hold on the sequins in the bottom photo. Truly that was out of the box for me as I usually use beads for that! giggles
The top two pictures I have used silk ribbon to make the french knots. I can't claim that as an original idea as that is a kit I purchased and stitched.
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.
