The prompt this week is assemblage. Not a prompt that is perfectly suited for a journal in my opinion. I kept the components lightweight in an effort to make it work for my journal. It was fun to play with colours that are not typical for me. The background paper I created many years ago in a workshop. I am making an attempt to use up some of my overflowing decorated papers.
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.
