Lots of texture going on here. This is my interpretation of the forest floor. I have adhered burlap, lace, yarn, paper leaves, and a needle felted leaf. Oh yes, and paint. This piece has become quite stiff with all the glue and paint. I am not sure if I will be able to add any stitching to it. The plan is for it to become a cover for an altered book I am creating. I have some leaf shaped beads that I would love to add and will have to give it try. Hopefully, it isn't too miserable to stitch.

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.
