MyWillies

I remember being absorbed with art as a 1st grader after I received a Christmas coloring book from my Secret Santa at school. I spent the entire Winter break coloring every inch of that book. By the 7th grade, I painted a massive pink rose, on canvas with oil paints, and my dad took me to the craft store to have it professionally framed.

As an adult I would make things for my daughter: Raggedy Ann & Andy dolls, a patchwork quilt, lots of dresses, and Halloween costumes. I also tinkered with jewelry making and crochet.

My dad’s death, in 2010, kicked my creativity into high gear and I used art to help manage my grief. I would gather his clothing, cut, and piece it all together to make quilts and teddy bears. Once the crafting became manic, I opened an Etsy store, naming it MyWillies, after my dad.
Today, I work with an assortment of mediums and love learning new skills. I tend to gravitate toward sculpting whimsical animals out of polymer clay and accenting them with acrylic paints. Each critter has his (or her) own story to tell with the purpose to make someone smile.

My creations have placed 1st, 2nd, and 3rd in the Logan County Fair in the Professional Mixed Media Sculpture category.
