My bead journal for January is giving me a bit of a hard time. I have a six inch square of wool felt, the colour in the photo is all wrong. It is actually much more vibrant. I have embroidery JOY and plan to bead the rest of the square. I have been lacking inspiration for this. Just this minute I looked over at one of my crazy quilts and inspiration hit me. I think I know the direction to take with this. Love it!
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.
