I really don't need more supplies. I guess most of us don't. Still I love the thrill of the hunt. Plus my Mom loves to haunt thrift stores with me so we have fun together. This week I found the glitzy yellow fabric. I generally don't work a lot with yellow but who knows.... The pearl clip on earrings don't sparkle but they were too pretty to pass up. The shiny belt will be cut and used in small pieces. The gorgeous glass buttons were in a bag that was only a dollar! I am sure these pieces will find a home in my art somewhere! Happy Mother's Day to all!
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.
