Kerri L Hoey's Profile

About

Hello everyone, I'm Kerri!

I have always had an interest in the arts. From elementary school through high school fine art was the class I looked forward to the most and I was fortunate to have some really great instructors. My grandparents were creative people. One grandmother was skilled in sewing, knitting and crochet. She often made afghans and stuffed animals as gifts for myself and my siblings. Holidays were spent at my other grandmother's home painting ceramics. Unfortunately I never met my late grandfather but back in the 1940's he made and sold jewelry. We are fortunate to have some surviving pairs of his handmade earrings.

In college I majored in a science, specifically Wildlife Management. Due to the rigorous curriculum I was not able to get extensive formal art training as an adult. Although science is still a great love of mine…

In college I majored in a science, specifically Wildlife Management. Due to the rigorous curriculum I was not able to get extensive formal art training as an adult. Although science is still a great love of mine I continue to dedicate as much time as possible to being creative. Recently I have been working in mixed media. I love working with acrylic paint, paper, vintage images, original photographs and found objects. My interests are varied. I am most inspired by nature, travel and dreams. Halloween being my favorite holiday, my work is sometimes spooky. All mixed media artwork here is a one-of-a-kind (OOAK) original.

In 2011, I added my photography and digital collage to the shop. I love taking photographs! I continue to learn and improve my skills in this area.

In February, 2012 I became a leader for the Wicked Crafty Team. This is a New England based art group right here on Etsy. Please visit us at: http://www.etsy.com/teams/8513/wicked-crafty.
