Can you sum yourself up in 3 sentences? Give it a go!
Art is a necessity for me. Otherwise I am a devoted wife, and dog owner. My influences are diverse, which comes through in the various media I work in.
Tell us about what you sell:
I sell polymer clay jewelry, oil paintings, textiles (weaving and felt), prints and greeting cards.
What is your favorite thing about creating?
My favorite thing about creating is the colors that I get to work with and create. I get sucked in by anything with colors I like. You should see me in front of Kitchen Aid Mixer displays! :) But seriously, I’m mainly identifiable through my color use and it brings me joy.
Where do you find your inspiration?
I find inspiration in many things – from the mundane (my morning coffee) to great art (Chihuly as of late). I’m also very inspired by industrial landscapes and urban architecture. It comes through in the geometry of my work. Lastly, I hope, that I find some inspiration from humor.
Do you have any advice for other sellers?
Stay true to yourself. The folks I read about on Etsy who have the greatest success have made their own niche that is true to who they are.
