I have stitched together a fabric journal with six pages. I plan to make the rest of my bead journal pages to fit into this book. All the fabrics in the journal are my own, in that I painted or dyed them. This month is used some silk paper that I created as the base for my beading. Some of the beading is a bit tough to see so you will have to click on the picture to enlarge it.
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.
