Meet the Artist! It's In the Bag 30% OFF Blow Out Sale on The CraftStar!


Meet the Artist:

Painting is a fairly new experience for me. Up until a few years ago I only worked in black and white. I have a degree in Fine Arts. While in school my focus was on sculpture, printmaking and life drawing. I worked in charcoal, pen and ink and graphite. Never in color. In fact I've never taken a painting class.

A few years ago I was looking at tiles for a back splash for my kitchen. Not finding anything I liked I decided to try painting one myself. Two hundred tiles later I was hooked on painting. I've painted window treatments and murals in various rooms in my house. Not to mention glass ware and just about any other surface I could find.

My daughter-in-law suggested I try selling some of my work. I dismissed the idea but I found I couldn't get it out of my head. I began quietly painting bags and glasses until I worked up the nerve to actually try selling anything. I owe my daughter-in-law Janice a huge debt of thanks. She showed me where the door was, all I had to do was open it.

Please keep in mind, buying from small businesses helps families directly.

 Please consider The CraftStar for your holiday gifting.
