About Me

My photo

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 artistic
2.  About 80% of my work turns out better than the original idea
3.  I am not a fast artist, I have to start on an idea and then let it sit for a while
4.  It's OK that my "artsy" brain sometimes goes in 1,000 different directions at once
With 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!

More fabric bowls!

Most people that know me know that I have ADD when it comes to my art stuff, one week I'll be sewing and then the next week I may be painting.  Other people can't keep up with me but this is how my mind works.  I have found something that is so easy and so addictive that (once again) I keep returning to it, it's making fabric bowls.  It does take time and is very tedious but I love the process of one coming together.  We had a huge art festival this weekend near my art gallery so I decided to make a few more of these fun bowls.  Six to be exact:

They are now all for sale at Olde Towne Art in Portsmouth, VA
