I am really glad I signed up for the San Fransisco School of Needlework and Design's Burlesque Challenge. It is due in less than a month and I feel confident that I will have all the stitching completed. Challenges inspire me and due dates help to keep me focused. I am having so much fun playing with the glitzy threads (donated by Kreinik) and fabrics. However, I am not liking the row of silk ribbon flowers in the center. I knew it as I was stitching them that they were likely going to be removed.

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.
