I have a nice start on my bead journal project for February. This old doily I hand dyed. An old doily makes a lovely base for a mandala. I have been doing my bead journals in a circle form for quite a while now, on and off. I have quite a collection of them. I am hoping to create enough of them to have a solo show somewhere, sometime. I honestly can't see myself tiring of working with a circle.
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.
