From analog to digital

Foret was created to provide a virtual store in that amazing land of e-commerce. Being no longer physically able to endure the rigors of craft shows and other venues, Etsy provides the ideal solution at this point in my journey.

My background is in fine arts, specifically photography and works on paper. One of these days, I will offer some of my photography and original digital art for sale. I am also an apparel designer. Creating jewelry is something I have always been drawn to ever since I was a little girl. That and making all of my own clothes since I was about 12 years old. Let's face it... I love to play dress up and have always had my own distinctive style. It makes sense to me... always perplexed and amazed my mom who was a doctor and scientist. I thank the gods she allowed me free reign with my creativity.

I have a strong connection and affinity to the cosmos and the earth, and my work is inspired by that connection.

ps. I am also a professional counseling astrologer with over 35 years experience. Contemplating reopening my metaphysical shop here on Etsy, but in the meantime there are a few astrological listings in my second shop: ForetTwo.
