We can't help everyone, but everyone can help someone. Great quote. I enjoy helping when I can. I love when I feel I have made a difference in someone's life. My life seems so rich. I have been volunteering at community center that caters to the homeless and needy. Last week we did a found poetry journal page. I had cut up old book pages into strips. We sifted through the strips to find words that jumped out at us. The bottom image is the journal page I created with my found poetry. It was so fun to do this. The participants asked me to bring it back again this week.
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.
