Why I create what I create

What does it mean to me “to embellish my art”?
A definition might be
- to make more beautiful with ornamentation
- to increase attractiveness with decoration and fanciful details
To me beads and embellishments are about a deeper meaning. Embellishing an art quilt or cloth figure captures my attention, my “spirit" and brings joy to the creative process.
The glitz and glitter of beads and sequins add joy to my work. My work sparkles with JOY and reflects the delight I feel in life.
My desire is that the viewer will not just see the work but feel the joy.
That is why I sign my work
Enjoy, Robbie
