I made paper this past week. I incorporated some thread bits in it and really like the way that looks, top photo. The bottom photo shows the web of paper I made. Not too happy with that mess, that's for sure. Possibly I can cut out small parts of it and make use of it that way. I can imagine doing another mixed media bead journal and incorporating it into that.

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.
