My 'sinchie' is finished. Our guild challenge is a six-inch square and the colour this month is brown. I rarely work with the colour brown but I did manage to find some brown things in my stash. I started with a hand-dyed wool as the base. I added some painted cheesecloth and lace and kept building from there. I really wanted this piece to be full of texture. Silk pods, mica flakes, heated tyvek, a feather and a skeleton leaf were added to create a forest floor.

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.
