I am a mother, artist and wife. This is a personal journey I have chosen to document and share with others. For me this blog is a fusion of art, embroidery, sewing, painting and a spirit walk. I have been inspired by so many others who have shared their art. To you I say “thank you.” My hope is that in some small way others are inspired. Peace to you.
and so, I begin……….
My artistic adventure began in the early 1980’s with glass beads. I had gone to a Renaissance Fair and had seen these beautiful beaded earrings and I thought to myself I would love to make them. It was very difficult to find books or directions on how to bead. Finally, I found a really amazing bead shop and also located someone who was willing to teach me how to bead earrings. During the 1980’s I was hanging out with a well known sculptor and he gave me a box of paints and paint brushes. The only condition was that I paint pictures and use what he had given me. I still use some of those original paint brushes. Right now I paint pictures, embroider items, needlepoint, sew dolls and whatever I am inspired to create for myself or a giveaway.
