About MySerenityWay

On Etsy since 2009

Found my art form love while heading somewhere else!!

My background is a BS in Accounting and over 45 years working in
Accounting/Office Management/Human Resources. I recently retired from my day job and am thoroughly enjoying my freedom to spend more time on my art work. I began using the other side of my brain on this artistic journey about 13 years ago
by making a paper cut design around an inspirational phrase to give
encouragement to a very sick friend. In time I began to have more
ideas and receive orders from friends. For the first few years I cut
by hand, but began to have physical problems that made it painful
to do. With my husbands help I was able to move this old art form
to a 21st century method by creating my designs in a graphic arts
program and bridging the program to a plotter cutter. Along the way
I made this business official calling it Serenity Way (aka MySerenityWay). I currently sell my artwork at an Artist co-op called Artisans‘ Corner in Clinton, NY in addition to my ETSY shop.

Over the past several years I have done extensive research into my
Irish/Scottish heritage. During this time I also became interested in
all things Celtic, including Celtic Knot work. One series of my Paper
Cut Artwork includes Irish/Celtic prayers and blessings surrounded
by a Celtic Knot cut mat border.

Welcome to MySerenityWay. The overall theme in my artwork and in my shop is encouragement, hope and inspiration as is found in many of the prayers, blessings and inspirational verses. My relaxation place, nature, has also inspired many of my silhouettes. Please enjoy your journey through my shop. I'm so happy you stopped by!
