This piece is needle felted with wool and organza. I have tried out some new beaded embroidery stitches as well as just regular beading on this piece. As for the beaded embroidery stitches I really enjoy them. The problem I have with them is finding a needle that has a big enough eye to use embroidery thread but small enough to go through a bead.
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.
