My first post

Hi everyone,
Guess I am joining the blogging world. I thought I would write a little about me. I am creating this blog to share my art and the art of other artists. I would love to trade ideas and art knowledge with the greater art community out there.

I am have always had a passion to create, experiment and grow. I have a natural attraction to all things whimsical, fun and childlike. I believe this shows up in my work. I enjoy working in both 2D and 3D and don't limit myself to one medium.

Like so many, I have always been an artist, it is my form of meditation. I am very drawn to art created for the holidays and children's illustrations. As a painter, I loved Renoir's comment "Why shouldn't art be pretty? There are enough unpleasant things in the world." As a teenager, I collected antique children's books. My favorite are the Wizard of Oz books, although they are expensive! I also have Alice in Wonderland. Very fun. I love creating magical and Anthropomorphic characters in both sculpture and drawing. In fact one often leads to the other. I just let my imagination and the process carry me through the project. Sometimes I end up creating something entirely different than I had envisioned. That is the fun of it!
