Coffee filter mandala/kaleidoscopes have endless possibilities. I haven't counted how many of these I have created but I bet in the hundreds. Coffee filters are cheap and very durable. They are obviously not indestructible but they will take some stitching. Markers and paint are not a problem at all. There are many ways to take them further but do I have to? What if I make them just for the pleasure of making? Period, end of the sentence.
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.
