I will be doing four circular bead journals this year. This is the first. I included a vintage earring on this one and hope to include something vintage on the next three. These bead journals will be going into the center of my crazy quilt projects for corresponding months. They are not actually crazy quilts per se but vintage blocks I inherited. This is the first time I have planned to include my bead journal into another project.
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.
