The top photo is a page that I created based on the thought of heart strings. I have seen some jewelry made in a similar way. I felt a strong need to make some but I would never wear jewelry like that. So a book page was born.
The bottom photo is a collage that contains three beautiful buttons. My dear sister sent them to me! They work perfectly with this book.
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.
