I have "officially" been an artist for just a few years now, but I have actually been an artist all my life - the desire to create things drives me! I have always loved drawing and crafting since I was a child - daydreaming and doodling my way through school!
After about 20 years of focusing on being a wife and mother (which I still am!) and not doing much art, a few years ago, I started drawing again. I am mostly self-taught, and I have been growing and changing in my styles and techniques, soaking up tutorials and trying new things!
For the past 4 years, I have been selling hand made jewelry featuring my miniature paintings, greeting cards and prints as well as small paintings and ACEOs through Etsy and local shows. I am looking to transition into focusing more on my art rather than jewelry. I would love to illustrate children's books and have also begun to do surface patterns design.
