And it has been attached to the crazy quilt project for March. I included an old rose earring on this piece. It was my Mom's. I remember lovingly sorting through her pretty earrings as a child. It feels good to include it in my art. I am excited to start on the next bead journal. The stitching process is very soothing to my soul.
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.
