Who I am

To me titles are not what makes a person, ie artist, lawyer, doctor, etc., those are what they may do, not necessarily who they are.  So with that in mind, I'll start my introduction with what I purport to be as a fellow human being: having a good sense of humor, realist with a vivid imagination, female, married for nearly 35 years now, mother and now grandmother!  I hold to high moral standards, while still seeing my many faults.  I tend to look for the good in others, and I ask many questions, it's the only way I know how to get to know others. I love to learn & teach others.  


As to what I do with my creative side..I am mostly self-taught, recently within the last 5 years now. I started believing I do have artistic talent and  now I don't want to stop.  I had dabbled in painting off and on, encouraged it in my children, but didn't think I could draw a decent stick man.  Through an art group I was encouraged at even my most simplest attempts, which spurred me on to try more.  Then the day I first sold something was thrilling, it had only been hung up at the cafe for a few minutes when someone bought it. What was special was that it was an accomplished artist who bought it, and hung it above her drawing table to inspire her.  WOW.

It is fantastic to be able to be with the start of the Art Colony.  It comes at a time when I am working to get back into the swing of things with regards to making art.  I am currently take an online course called the Art of Action, intended to help us find the way to "doing", making action happen.  The first steps were to write out goals, and one of mine was to find new ways to connect with the artist world.  

We recently moved from central Indiana to Georgia.  A big change.  In…

Hi Kathy - Wow, that is great timing that this art community popped up just as you were looking for one!  I think you will find a lot of friendly, wonderful artists to get to know here. It's an inspiring place already, and it's only just begun!

Yes, once the site goes "live" you will be able to link to this site from your blog, website, etc.  Right now it's in "private" mode so that only us few can see it, while we get situated and make sure there are no bugs or issues that need to be ironed out.  In about a week the site will go public so that everyone in the world can see it and join. And then you can link as much as you want! :)

Ah-ha, I thought your profile pic was fabric!!  It is really nice what you've done with it - very clever and the effect of the fabric showing through turned out really well. I'm excited that you're here cause you've inspired me already. Thank you for that! Enjoy the site!
