So I haven't give up on this block. I added some buttons and trims. I am liking it better. I think the square of lace in the upper middle was too distracting so I still need to stitch the trims on top it, they are just pinned on right now. Possibly it will be done once I do that.
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.
