I don't even know where to begin, but here goes! I am a full-time Paralegal, a mother of 3 with 2 step-children, I started crafting in August of 2012, I was inspired by a trip to New Orleans…my husband and I walked past an art gallery and the artwork inside caught my attention…told him, "if they can do that and get it displayed, then so can I"…so I went to Michael's(after my trip of course) to buy materials to get started, but before I could even get to the back of the store, a display table with some paintings caught my eye…they were signing people up for Art classes at 50% off, I couldn't resist, so I signed up! After I got my supplies I went back up and saw that there was a jewelry table and classes available as well, I signed up for that too…and the rest is history!
I started mixed media shortly thereafter, I looked up how-to videos on YouTube and even made a few videos of my own. Everything started off as a hobby but now have turned into a small business adventure. I would love to be able to teach classes on all three of my crafts some day in the future. I am a self-taught artist and If I can learn and do, anyone else can too!
I am happy to be given this opportunity with Artsy Addicts…to be able to share my talent with you all. I hope for many other opportunities in the near future!
