I have bought a number of silk hankies/caps over the years. I love silk but must admit I didn't really know what to do with them except needle felting. The other day I happened across a youtube video about drafting a hanky. So I gave it a try. It was surprisingly easy. The bottom picture is my result. I am excited to experiment with that a bit more. While I had out my silk I decided to color a silk cap with my Inktense blocks. Top picture shows that it works rather well.
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.
