I dabble in tons of mediums - recycling everything I can get my crafty hands on.
I spend a lot of time at thrift stores, garage sales and gathering finds from other second hand sources.
The messier the art, the happier I am! I am very tactile and like to work with textured art, as opposed to one dimension, like painting.
Part of the appeal of tactile mediums is that I was born legally blind and I hope to develop my skills enough to be able to create with my eyes closed. That way, as my eyesight decreases, which is "a natural part of aging" according to my eye doctor, I'll still be able to function artistically. I'm not being pessimistic by saying that, rather I'm being realistic - a personality trait I have.
I enjoy the process of exploring different mediums, even making mistakes along the way is a good thing.
I'm a free spirit when it comes to my projects. I don't draw things our or plan very much. I start with a vague idea, jump in with both hands and see what happens. If it turns out, cool. If not, there's sure to be a lesson learned along the way.
I'd love to have you follow me, so that we can learn together!
And now, I'm off to create... something!
