This project got sidelined. I had done most of the stitching when I hit a problem. My machine acted up, snarled the thread and created two holes. So disappointing. I was chatting with a friend yesterday who had the same problem. It made me think there must be some way to rescue this project. I should be able to come up with a way to cover those mistakes. I had not planned to do any hand stitching on this project but now I believe that might be the way to redeem this.
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.
