The journal prompt this week is words as it has been for the whole month of January. I arrived home today after having been in Hawaii. Home felt like the right word to use for my page. Our vacation was utterly fabulous. Vacations are great and they always make me appreciate my home and lifestyle all the more. Even though it is cold and snowing right now and I am finding it hard to feel warm enough I am happy to be home. My page was created with some hand dyed and crumpled paper. I added some strips of hand dyed scrap fabric and my word, home.
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.
