Trial and Error Lead to Moments of Art

Moments of Art has been a long-time dream in the making.

I've tried a lot of different things...administrative, insurance sales, personnel management...hated them all. I truly believe life is lived in the Small Moments, and my small moments were being eaten up doing things I didn't want to be doing eight hours a day. But I trudged on, without realizing what I was truly meant to do.

Then a few years ago, I got sick. I continued to work, but the stress only made my condition worse. And eventually, I had to accept that I could no longer work in the corporate world because of my health.

So I had to look for something else. Fortunately, I have a loving, supportive husband with the patience of a saint, who has put up with me trying several different things while I figured it out. Because I tried a lot of things that didn't work out.

At first I was going to work as an administrative assistant from home--not much call for that where I live. Then I decided to make bridal accessories--great idea, just not the right one for me. Then I tried selling Avon--again, not the right fit for me. I didn't know what I was going to do.

Then in April 2012, we got a new sofa. I know...you weren't expecting that, but there's a reason for telling you about getting a new sofa. Because of the new sofa, I decided I wanted some new art for above it. I wanted something original, and it need to fill a large space, but for the first time in my life, I was not living in a space where I had room to paint a large canvas.

I had to get creative, and I did. Instead of one large piece, I decided to do a gallery wall of twelve original pieces. I used public domain images of vintage flowers and herbs to create original art of my own, and I loved them! But it didn't end there. Everyone who came to our house loved them, and I was constantly asked where I got those beautiful prints. When I told them I made them, I was always told I should make more and sell them.

That was the spark that created the idea for Moments of Art.

Everything in life happens for a reason. Everything that's happened to me has led me to where I am. Some things forced me to re-evaluate, other things encouraged me to look for something new, and others inspired me with the idea. All of them played a part in the opening of Moments of Art.

    I have been an artist my entire life. Although for a long time, I didn't think of myself that way. Now that I recognize that's what I have always been, I realize all the things I did before were not me. I have found my happiness.

    This is my husband. He is my partner in every way, the one who has made everything I am doing possible. He is the practical one, who keeps me on track, and my biggest supporter. Plus, he lifts the heavy stuff. I couldn't do what I do without him.

Frequently asked questions

Is your hair natural?

I don't know why I get this question so often, but yes, my hair is naturally curly and I don't color it.

Custom and personalized orders

There are a few that can be customized. I've added names and wedding dates, changed the background, and printed in different sizes. I charge $15 extra to do customization. I will set up a custom listing for you for the $15, which you will have to purchase before I do any work on customization. Then I will send you pictures so you can see the customization before you purchase. Once you're happy, I'll make another custom listing for you to order your print. Unfortunately, custom orders cannot be returned or refunded.

Are Frames Included

Frames are not included. Each print is shipped ready to frame, so you can match the decor of your own home.
