My fibre guild met this week. We decided to work on a two color, 6 inch square challenge for each month this year. A 6 inch square is not intimidating and yet gives us some room for experimentation. I was excited to get started. Going through my bin of bits and pieces I came across a larger piece that I cut down to 6 inches, top photo. It is a mix of fabric, paper and paint. I want to do some hand stitching into it. The bottom photo shows some sheer fabric, a dyed doily and a piece covered in different yarns. They all fit the challenge and I am considering using them to create a second piece this month.

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.
