Sassy Kat Stuff

Marada Ventures Emporium will soon be closed. Due to illness, I have not yet secured a place to relocate my shop (but will). I'll begin moving my inventory next week and am reorganizing some so that I'll be posting here (on Sassy Kat Stuff) and Facebook Marketplace as well as in my Etsy shop various items including bandanas, colored glass bottles, vintage glass, and miscellaneous household items. There are some great bargains at Marada Ventures Emporium so if you're out and about, stop by (298 Hwy 75N, Huntsville). Original art will be posted on my website, HopewellKat.com and here on Facebook at Hopewell Kat ~ and you can always contact me via Messenger for information on available art and commissions.

Though I've been down for a couple of weeks with serious shingles affecting my eye - severe vision problems - I did finish the little bit of background undone on this small acrylic piece - Five Flowers, 8"x10". #artist #hopewellkat #artoninstagram #countryartist #katbailey #flowers

Friends, sadly, Marada Ventures Emporium is closing at the end of February. I hope to move my shop, Hopewell Kat (and Sassy Kat Stuff), during February and will post details when I finalize them. Stop by Marada Ventures Emporium for lots of great deals.

Profile Information

 

After retiring from 30 years in education, I discovered, shockingly, that I had been a workaholic. I had always written and made things and said for a long time, "I make stuff" before I settled into an ease with calling myself "an artist" with any conviction. I live in a small community in Texas called Hopewell and create and paint in our log cabin as well as at my studio in Huntsville, Texas (@HeatonHouseStudio). I write for Hello Humans, contribute to The Huntsville Item (@Kat Bailey on Facebook) and post my writing on Medium. I love to upcycle and spend a little time each month combing resale shops for inspiration and unusual art (@SassyKatStuff).  Life as an artist is good.  My website: hopewellkat.com is updated as I can get to it; but, I'm found on Instagram, Twitter, and lots of other social media sites as HopewellKat, Hopewell Kat, and Kat Bailey.

On being/becoming an artist and acknowledging the fragile moments, steps and stumbles on the path to an intimate understanding of my journey thus far. My most recent essay on Hello Humans.

HINDSIGHT: An artist who always was

I have a dilemma.

While updating inventory in my space at a co-op shop, a flash of horror came over me as I looked at several…

thanks Kat    I agree, I used to have difficulty drawing a horse facing forward and I'm afraid the only way to get it right is by practising it over and over. It will come, I promise. Have a great day     Ed
