This is my first attempt at the Lock stitch. Why do my stitches never look like Sharon's at http://pintangle.com/ ? I do highly value being an individual and rarely do I want to be just like someone else so I guess I should celebrate that my stitches are unique! Yah that's it! Yay! Me! I learned a new stitch today!
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.
