The top photo is my newest piece in my water series. The substrate is crumpled copy paper. I have added gesso, paint and ink. The paper is fairly durable but it did rip in a bit. I don't mind that at all. I also couched down some funky yarn.
The bottom photo is my piece from last week. I added some stitching with a metallic thread.
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.
