This is the start of my bead journal project for June. I thought I would try out the beaded feathered chain stitch that Sharon B at http://pintangle.com/ taught us last week. I used a round bead and I didn't stitch in a zig zag pattern. I used a Kreinik thread that is metallic and almost looks like little beads.
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.
