Closet Artist No More
My Ma (who wishes to remain anonymous) is a pretty amazing lady. She's had some crazy experiences, worked in many different fields and raised three kids. One thing she has always been is a closet artist. That's a weird phrase, right?
I've seen Ma's sketchbooks from when she was a teenager (I won't tell you when that was ) and to me, it seems that she has always been able to take something she sees and get it down on paper (or any available surface) with a pencil, pen, paintbrush or whatever - and even when you see it years later, never having seen the thing she was looking at - you can see what she saw.
She can translate this into other areas of art as well: sewing, crochet, even sculpting things out of clay. She started crocheting in January, and she quickly learned all the weird shorthand that is the language of the field. She can follow any pattern, she can make anything and make it look easy (even while she's cursing because she lost count... again).
So back to that closet artist statement... If you met Ma, it would probably take you a while to learn these things about her. This is why she now has an Etsy shop, and why I am the one running it. I know I'm her daughter and I'm supposed to love her and admire what she does because she's my mom - but even if I weren't her daughter, I would feel the same way, and many of our friends do as well, once they see the things she creates.
The best part is, now you don't have to take my word for it. Check it out for yourself :)
Owner, Assistant, Customer Service
Over the years, I have learned that I make a really good assistant. I've done it for many people, and learned many things and now I get to use my skills to run this shop for my Ma, so she can create, create, create!
Ma has been an artist as long as I've known her... and probably before that, too :) She draws, paints, crochets, sews and a whole bunch of other things. She's also totally into making fermented food, gardening and crime novels.
