Previously I had considered this block finished. In reality I wasn't happy with it and was just tired of working on it. This week I added the three mauve roses, top right. I added some vintage handmade lace with rick rack, top left. In the lower left I added the white lace heart and a handmade pansy I received in a swap. Definitely some improvements. I am still not completely happy with it but I am not giving up.
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.
