Our fibre guild has decided to continue our monthly 'sinchie' challenge for the coming year. Previous years the challenges were based on color. This year we decided to focus on a concept/idea. I think this will be very interesting. For September our word is dream. So many possibilities for that one! Pictured above is my start on it. A friend gifted me with some Angelina fibres so I created a base with them. Actually, my friend gifted with a big box of supplies as she is preparing to move. I have used some ribbon from that box. It is sheer in areas but it has not adhered properly in some places so I need to hit it with the iron again. Also in the box was some sequin waste ribbon. I have cut out a little star shape from it and plan to cut out more and stitch them onto this. In the past, I have always made my 'sinchies' perfectly square but not this one.

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.
