I really like this piece. I made silk paper and then did some needle felting to it. I added some embroidery and beading. I attached it all to some silk charmeuse. The top photo is a close up of the beading but really you shouldn't view this piece too close. I wish the photos did it better justice.
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.
