45 years ago I was told at school that I was useless at art and my work only merited a ‘D’ marking.
It has been a revelation to find an art form which I enjoy creating and feel reasonably confident that I can produce a satisfying end product.
Embellished applique is one of my favorite mediums. The bead work and textured effects hold a particular interest for me as I find combining various textures, colours and shiny/sparkly materials is stimulating and rewarding.
Although my art is mainly hand worked and therefore rather time consuming, it is very relaxing and absorbing to make.
