The top photo show my bead journal where it will end up on my crazy quilt project. I have place some beads on it to see if I like the way they look. I took them off and stitched down some of them. Bottom photos shows them stitched down and more placed on for further consideration. It is coming along, I just need to take the next step.
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.
