The prompt for February is reuse, recycle and repurpose. I wasn't feeling terribly inspired by this. I made a colour copy of a fibre piece. I like the piece but wanted to see if I could push it further. A colour copy is a safe way to do that. I added a bit of paint to it and the quote 'Reflect upon your present blessings of which every man has many- not on your past misfortunes, of which all men have some.' Dickens
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.
