The fabric back ground is a monoprint with pencil crayon added as well as hand quilting. The large shape (seems too large now) is gelli plate printed, handmade paper. I did not capture the sparkle of the thread or paint that is on it. Now I am not liking it so much and think I may add some beads for more sparkle!
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.
