The journal prompt this week was to create a page with leaves. Nina demonstrated creating a page doing leaf rubbings. Leaf rubbings are great but I didn't want to copy her. I drew and coloured this leaf and added a watercolour background. The quote I used says 'How strange that nature does not knock, and yet does not intrude.' Emily Dickinson
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.
