I’ve always enjoyed crafting, having wanted to be an “artist” when I was very young. Through the years, I continued making crafts but became increasingly self conscious about showing my work. I enjoy paper crafting, altering items, mixed media, painting water media, and knitting. I was never able to receive a good solid base in art education as I was growing up. As an adult, I was fortunate to study locally with a very gifted artist for a brief while and I read to help expand my knowledge. I take classes nearby when they are offered in my interest areas but getting from know-how to do-now has been a long journey. I am starting my blog to challenge myself to stick with my creative goals and to expose my creations to a wider audience.
I live in southern WV with my hubby, two children and an aging beagle. I am working on my goals for myself creatively and improving my time management skills to help me achieve them. I am exploring the role that art will play in my life, whether remaining a hobby or growing into something more. Regardless I now say, “I am an artist. And this is what speaks to my heart!” I hope you will find something that makes you smile, maybe inspiration, maybe peace and that you just might launch out on your own journey of discovery!
