Last week I had the joy of taking an art workshop with some friends. I didn't learn anything new but certainly had fun. We each created a journal from one large piece of watercolor paper. The pages have fold outs and the cover wraps around. Now I need to do something with this journal. I was thinking the pages that fold out could be cut into more interesting shapes. I was also thinking about stitching into the paper. We will see, I don't have a lot of energy for such things just yet. I need a couple of more days of recovery from this stupid cold.
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.
