Hand Painted Art From My Brain To Your Wall

From the time I was little, art was always a part of my life. Whether I was playing with Play-Doh, building Legos, making a stove out of paper that could open and close, or drawing, I was always finding new ways to express my creativity. My parents noticed my need for a creative outlet and sent me to drawing classes. Over time, I developed a knack for drawing and even was able to draw perspective drawings before I really knew how it was supposed to be done.

I guess the irony of this shop is that I used to think painting was the only creative thing I couldn't do. I tried painting several times on my own and I could never get my paintings to look as real as my drawings. So, I figured it just wasn't my thing. Fast forward about 20 years and here I am with a shop for my very own paintings!

It all started in my studio apartment in Chicago. I loved modern organic artwork and decor and how beautiful simple organic shapes with bold colors were. After seeing several pieces of artwork that I loved, I decided to try and see if it was something I could do. I painted the tree photographed in this article first, then slowly began to fill up every empty space on my walls. Even after moving to Colorado and getting bigger walls, it didn't take long to fill them. I never intended to share them with others, but I ran out of room an didn't want to stop painting which was obviously a problem!

I began to take pictures of my work and post them on Facebook just for fun. I got so many unexpected compliments and then the idea of being able to turn my hobby into a career began to swirl around my head. I slowly began to take it more seriously and decided to build up an inventory and develop a business plan.

Most of my paintings still reflect that modern organic inspiration I began with. But some stem from hobbies and passions of mine, ie. roller derby or music. It's been a challenging but very exciting journey and I can't wait to see where it takes me!

    Painting is not just what I do to earn some dollar bills. Painting is what I do to keep my whole balanced. It's what I do to sustain my sanity in my very wonderful and crazy world.

    This shop wouldn't be possible without the love and support from my super hot hubby! He has several hobbies and works full-time, but somehow manages to be a huge support for this shop. I am forever grateful for his helping hand!
