When did you start making cards?
I began creating cards in 2005, but have been illustrating since I was big enough to pick up a crayon. Oil painting is my first passion. I am a crazy fan of the Impressionists. However, I learned early that paint and babies don't mix well. Pen and ink became my new creative outlet, post children. They are portable and quick to clean up. (The pens, not the kids.) ") Once I discovered this new love, of all things pen and ink, the doodles started stacking up. My insightful husband thought I should put them to good use. Greeting cards became a great outlet.
Where do you craft? Do you have a picture?
This is me, as is - total creative chaos. I adore my cozy space. It has a ton of windows, lots of light, and assorted coffee stains. (I am a major coffee addict.) It looks out on the garden where I find a lot of inspiration. The space is also a play/craft area for my girls. We love creating together.
What would you love to add to your crafting space?
I would love space to set up a studio for art classes/oil painting, a Wacom Tablet, Adobe Illustrator/Photoshop, additional storage, and an in-house coffee shop!
What type of art/cards do you enjoy making the most?
I love to do custom work and any type of illustration. Bible verses, Snowmen, and Birthday cakes have been big themes that I have been inspired to draw lately.
Do you have a day job?
I am a Mom, Wife, and Teacher of Computers and Technology, part-time, at a local elementary school. I LOVE what I do and am blessed to work with amazingly talented people and fantastic kids.
Do you have a blog?
