Hi everyone! I have been browsing the gallery and I just love everything in there! I'm so excited to explore everything! I'm Joan, pleased to meet you all. Hopefully I'll get the hang of things…READ MORE
I'm a childhood abuse survivor, with PTSD, and art is a very integral part of my healing and therapy. I like to think of my studio as both a workshop and a safe place for me to express myself. Perhaps one day I will be far enough along in my recovery to help others utilize art as therapy also.
Youre very welcome Joan and thank you for your gracious comments about my artworks....lately I am at a block so haven't done any drawing...cant seem to get pass this block...I am working on some whacky hats for our upcoming class reunion next month so that's the only creative thing I have been doing....hopefully when that is done I can get back into drawing mode and get some work posted in the gallery....
Please note that as much as we love photography, this site focuses on hand-crafted art forms so photography is not allowed. Please also familiarize yourself with our guidelines on Digital Art. As per the Member Guidelines:
Digital art is accepted, as long as it fits the following definition: "Computer-generated art that is created by hand (i.e. using a tablet, stencil etc), either from scratch or from a reference source."
We've also put together a handy Guide to Getting Started, which may help answer any questions you may have, such as how to create a bio for your page.
Most of all have fun and join in the forums and groups! Can't wait to see your art. :)
