I did some needle felting on velvet - yummy! I then stitched on some beads. I used an entire package of swarovski crystals on this piece. I am using my good stuff! It feels good. It used to be that I would be concerned I wouldn't have enough of something. I would store up stuff and be afraid to use it. I have let go of that kind of thinking. If I need more of something I can just go buy it! There is always more good stuff coming. Go ahead have fun with the good stuff
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.
