Well, not really work in progress any more. It is finished. This altered book is full of mixed media and stitched butterflies. Each page of the book is cut so that the butterflies can fly out of the book. I call it 'Escape'. I am super excited that it has been accepted into an altered book show for this fall. Having my art accepted into a show is so validating. It feels so very good!

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.
