I am playing around with an idea. I have a number of pieces that feature this tree shape. This one started out much larger and was not working at all. I have cut it down and prefer it that way. I am thinking of creating a book with my tree pieces. I want to write a story for my grandchildren and use my fibre art as the illustrations for the story. I think it could be really fun and turn into something special.
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.
