Last year a guild member challenged us to create something from a piece of silk she provided. The color didn't suit me so I added some paint to make it more me. That is as far as I got on the challenge. The piece of silk hung around my studio for ages waiting for further inspiration. Finally this summer an idea struck me. I cut some of my gelli prints into circles and adhered them to the silk. I have added loads of random embroidery to it. It still needs more though. More color!

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.
