When I first read Tim's blog post about the February tag I was a bit overwhelmed. I didn't think that I would participate. I don't have a lot of the materials that he used. Then I thought better of that decision. Isn't that what creativity is all about? Challenging yourself to make something with what you have? I really like the tag that I created. It is similar to Tim's but not exactly the same. I can never copy another artist exactly anyway. What fun is that?
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.
