My favorite thing to do is experiment. I love just finding out what happens. There was a technique I read about in Maggie Grey's Workshop on the Web a while ago. It used paper towel as the base. It got me thinking about using fabric as the base as then it would be sturdy. I painted the fabric, you can't tell at all as I applied transfer foil with fusible web on top of that, after the paint had dried. I then applied one layer of a very pretty paper napkin. I think that you can see the foil shining through the napkin. For sure you can in real life. This layered fabric now has an very interesting feel to it. It would make a good book cover. There are a lot of possibilities with this technique.
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.
