The journal I am working in was created with papers that already had lots of marks on them. These papers were used to catch overspray, practice writing, test colors, etc. It makes for a rather busy background in my mind. I generally prefer simple. However, it is good for me to get out of my comfort zone. It forces me to work differently and I appreciate that. I always want to be growing and learning as an artist. This page is not a masterpiece and I am okay with that. I created, I learned, that is good enough.
This page features the quote Where you go, go with all your heart. Good advice.
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.
