Thanks to Sharon B at Pintangle for the instructions for the Bonnet Stitch. I think it is likely that I have done this stitch previously but it is not one that I use on a regular basis. I really must start using it more as it isn't difficult and it is interesting.
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.
