The page on the left features an envelope given to me. It was lovingly made to commemorate a special gift. A lovely friend, Betty, made me a warm and cuddly shawl. I treasure it and use it often. I feel covered in love when I snuggle up with the hand knit shawl. What a treasure! Well, if the shawl wasn't enough Betty's cousin made the envelope which contained a note about the shawl. Of course, I had to put the envelope some place special!
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.
