I am what you'd like to call a RENAISSANCE WOMAN. I really am. I have a lot of passions. A lot of things I love to play with in my studio. Somedays - it's just hard to choose what I want to create that day. So many things and projects appeal to me.. it's hard to choose! Paper crafting is my first passion. I love paper, plain and simple. I am still a firm believer in sending real mail and real cards in the mail, I love filling writing journals and my art journals with stories of my life, and I am a firm believer in using pretty things to tell your story, to tell my story.
I love to write. I love to write. I'm a writer at heart and it's one reason I have such an active blog. Writing comes easy and I so believe in telling the stories behind the photos. The stories that may not seem so obvious.
I learned to sew this past year, and am getting my toes wet when it comes to my sewing machine.. I love stitching on paper and love the pretty effects just some colored thread can give to a simple card or layout.
I have dabbled in jewelry making as well. I create my own talisman mantra pendants and map pendants for my shop, as well as bloom earrings and rings... always with lots of color!
Mixed media is another passion. I love playing with paints, acrylic inks and stencils in my work.. and using bits of found papers in my art. For me, anything goes!
I have been art journaling and playing more with paints and media for about one year - before that -- it was mostly just paper. Who knew how much I would love it?
I am truly a spontaneous artist. My Studio is jam-packed full of supplies, which reminds me, I seriously need to declutter and destash.. my room is busting at the seams! I usually sit down with a vague idea of what I want to work on for that day, but then, I just choose colors and mediums, and paper spontaneously -- whatever moves me, whatever I reach for at the time. I work better that way.. I honestly don't really plan any of my art.. it just happens!
