About

Colorful Art Without Limits

As a young girl, my first art was coloring in pictures my mom drew for me (because I didn’t like coloring books). I have been doing art work my whole life. In fact, my family all do art, so I call my house the “Art House.” My mom does clay and my stepdad does painting. I do all kinds of different art, like clay, painting, greeting cards, mugs, and drawing. Welcome to my shop.

I was born with Cerebral Palsy. My mom called UCP to get help learning about Cerebral Palsy. I have a UCP t-shirt that says “Don’t DIS My Abilities.” The CP does not keep me from doing art. I enjoy doing art work and it is fun. My mom got me into clay. I have been doing clay my whole life. I can go on the pottery wheel.

I love to use bright colors in my art. I love butterflies, hearts and horses, and they are in many of my art pieces. I also like to draw from photographs.

I've started making clay animal tiles where I print an image and put the image on the clay and poke holes on the lines. Then I remove the paper and I connect the dots. After firing I glaze with bright colors. See pictures of me in the studio above.

I paint both freehand and by tracing printed images. Then I put my paintings on note cards and coffee mugs. I also sell my paintings.

Thank you for visiting my shop.

Welcome to my butterflyheart44 shop. I have been doing art work my whole life. I was born with Cerebral Palsy. Because of my CP it takes me longer to do everything. My bowls are done on the wheel or in a mold. To make wall hangings, I cut a shape out of clay then use a needle tool to draw on a shape. I paint on all my glazes by hand and always make my clay work colorful.

I became interested in painting in high school art class. I enjoy painting on canvas. I like to use a pencil to draw out my design, and then use acrylic paint to make my paintings colorful. I like to paint butterflies, hearts, and trees. I am open to other suggestions you may give me for ideas to paint.
