I am amazed that I found time to work on this piece in the last week. Getting ready for quilt festival has been busy! I hate going backwards but I learned with this piece that sometimes you really have to do it. There was a ton of french knots I had to remove. The color of embroidery thread I used wasn't right. So that has been corrected and I am happier with it now. I also added some stitching and ribbon to lower portion.
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.
