...of-all-trades" that is. I listen to a podcast called Craftsanity (see link on this blog) with Jennifer Ackerman-Haywood and to steel a quote from her she said "I'm a jack-of-all-trades in my creative endeavors". And I think that would best describe me too. I've been thinking over the past few days what I've dabbled in and my list kept growing and growing.
Painting (Acrylics and watercolor) **
Sewing garments **
ATC's (Artist Trading Cards)
Linoleum Block Printing
(These are my "staple" crafts that I will always return to)
And as the days go by I may remember more things I've done. I may also add new endeavors to the list. In the comment section please share your creative endeavors with me as I'm always interested in seeing what other people are doing
- I started this blog on November 23, 2009 just because I wanted to chronicle my artistic endeavors and see "in black and white" how many different directions my artistic brain would go. I challenged myself to try different mediums and that this blog could be a platform to post my achievements and failures. I cannot believe it's been six years now! Over the past 6 years I've learned a few things from writing this blog:1. Art is in my blood, I will always be thinking or doing something artistic2. About 80% of my work turns out better than the original idea3. I am not a fast artist, I have to start on an idea and then let it sit for a while4. It's OK that my "artsy" brain sometimes goes in 1,000 different directions at onceWith all of this said I now consider myself a mixed media artist because I a lot of my talents cross over into other projects I've already started; It's a great life and I wouldn't change anything about my crazy artistic brain!
