Not sure why it has taken me so long to get around to finishing this. Well at least finishing the embellishing, the fun part. I will still need to put a backing and border on it which is not terribly exciting but it sure feels good once done. I used a seam treatment idea from Valerie Bothell on Facebook at Joyful Embellishments. She is very clever and it is good for me to learn from her!

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.
