My bead journal for July is a bit of an odd combination but I think it works. I am so happy to have finally come up with a way to use the piece of indigo dyed cotton that was gifted to me. Even though the tatted doily is a failed experiment with surface design I love the riot of colour. The beading isn't exceptional but good enough. This will eventually be quilted.
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.
