My friend Nancy was truly inspired and has continued to work on her journal pages. Do you recognize the bottom picture? The start of this page is pictured in my last post. She did this page in a beautiful journal she commissioned from a local artist. She will be taking this journal to Fiji, New Zealand and Australia next week. How I wish I were taking that trip! Some day I will!
Nancy made a pocket in this same journal from the dyed coffee filter. Clever use for the filter!
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.
