I am absolutely loving the way this piece is turning out! I discovered the podcast The Hidden Brain on NPR and have been listening to it while I stitch on my beads. What an enjoyable past time. At this point, I think I will stop working on this piece. I am leaning towards calling it finished but want to reserve the right to return to it. I really can't think of anything more to do on it but that may change. I do not have to rush.
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.
