Top photo is my bead journal for December. Bottom photo is my crazy quilt block for December. Actually, both of them I would like to do a bit more work on but I have run out of time. I am ready to move onto new projects anyway. 2014 wasn't a particularly creative year for me. Caring for my dying mother took a lot out of me. More than I realized at the time. I am feeling like my head is above water now and that my creativity is returning. Happy New Year!

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.
