Pursuit of Creativity

I started this shop back in 2008 as an experiment. At that time I was excited to seek out a community of likeminded artists and crafters, and to have an opportunity to sell or swap handmade items. I really loved (and still do) being in a place where I could see what other people were making. It opened my eyes to the handmade market.

Inevitably, I became much more inspired to reach past what I was normally doing (making jewelry with ready made craft store items, Shrinky Dink magnets, etc), and try other crafts and styles that I had never attempted. I had taught myself to knit intricate things. I revisited drawing, and I studied different styles. I experimented with all sorts of materials. I was inspired to learn.

I love working with my hands. It's an amazing thing to start out with a string of yarn, or a blank page, and end up with a finished piece. What once was so mundane became a very special form of love. Each stitch, each brush stroke, each line was an act of purpose and love - as small as that may be. When you put all of those tiny acts together, something tangible and truly amazing comes out of it. When I knit, I can so easily imagine that piece warming it's wearer. If it's a scarf, it's a hug from me. If it's mitts, it's like I'm holding your hands until they warm. If it's a blanket, it's a kind of snuggle.
When I paint, it's my way of opening my heart and my mind to others. I paint landscapes from my dreams. I paint places I have been, and how they've been imprinted on my soul. I paint places I've not been to, but have already wooed me.

Art is my way of living in the moment, and sharing the beauty of what I see and feel with others.
If you've any questions about my art, my inspirations, my knits, or would like to request a special project, please message me! I love to connect with others.
