Creating is my sanity!
I’ve been lucky all my life to be able to do what I love! Art is what I am not what I do!
Creating the kaleidoscope needlepoint series is an ongoing delightful experience for me! Color is an important part of these works and as I work with each color I feel uplifted and I think about the color that will sit next to it! The shapes come to me also as I move along the canvas. My purpose of this project was to evoke happiness. I hope it achieves what I set out to do. — Carol Carpentieri
