About

A Lifelong Need to Create

All my life I've been a creator. From the time I first learned to crochet when I was about 8 years old, I've almost constantly had something in my hands. At various times, I've crocheted, knitted, hooked rugs, attempted acrylic and oil painting, made woven wall hangings, woven baskets...you name it and I've probably tried it. And I've been somehow frustrated by all of it.

When I retired in 2015 after a 30 year career in the computer support field, I knew that I wanted to leave technology behind. Even though I found lots of satisfaction in my work, it never fulfilled that lifelong need to create with my hands. When an opportunity came up to enroll in a local watercolor class, I jumped at it. From the first stroke of brush to paper, I was enchanted. The way the colors react with the water and paper fascinates me. And from the day I walked into that watercolor class until now, I haven't stopped painting!

Since beginning painting, I've also become interested in book binding and am now offering my handmade books here as well.

At first I shared my efforts on my Facebook page but when so many people started asking to purchase my work, I decided I'd open an Etsy shop. I'm having a ball doing this and every purchase is as thrilling to me as the very first one.

    When I retired from a 30 year career in computer tech support, I was ready to put the technical field behind me and pursue my lifelong need to create. A local watercolor course gave me a start in the right direction and I've since begun book making.
