I honestly don't know why I save the ends of threads. It almost seems crazy. I know I am not the only one that does it though so there is some comfort in that. I felt the need to experiment with them and created a sheet of 'fabric' with them. Interesting result but now what. Last week I was thinking about a stalled project and decided to try creating a leaf with this new 'fabric'. I love it. It is lacey and colourful, textural and sparkly. I think I have to make some more of these leaves for that project.
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.
