Here is the start of my bead journal for May. The base is wool with needle felting. I have attached a strip of rhinestones and a beaded spoon. The small spoon I found a while back at a thrift store. There was a bag of them for just a few dollars. As soon as I saw them I knew I had to have them as a commentary went off in my head. The commentary is about education, which is near and dear to my heart. I will save it for another time though.

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.
