My animal print fabric book has definitely been a challenge. I have learned much from it. This page spread was looking like a hot mess but I wasn't willing to give up on it. Admittedly I thought about completely covering it with another piece of fabric until I decided to try one more thing. I used some watered down acrylic ink in a spray bottle and sprayed the whole page. What did I have to lose? Nothing, and I like the page a whole lot more now. Certainly it could be better but I am willing to take the lessons and move on.

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.
