I have to say that I LOVE messing around. I had no predetermined purpose for any of things I colored. I set out a stack of paper, fabric and doilies. I got a wash basin and put a damp piece of fabric in the bottom. I then sprayed some Tulip fabric spray paint on to the fabric. After which I layered a piece of paper and did the same thing. I continued layering and spraying until I had used up all the pieces with which I started. Sometimes I sprayed water also so that the colors would run a bit more. The pieces near the bottom ended a more muddied color because I used every color of spray I have. I knew that would happen but decided to just go for it anyway. I am not a big fan of muddied colors so I may have to add more color to those pieces to brighten them up a bit. The pieces on the top of the stack are more clear bright colors and I am happier with those.
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.
