What is your craft / art / creative endeavor?
My creative endeavor is to produce products that are beautiful and elegant yet affordable to everyone. By using recycled materials I hope to also show that I don’t have to destroy the earth to attain my dream.
How did you get started? Have you worked in other creative areas before the kind of work you’re doing now?
At 13 years old, I realized I wanted to be an artist. And by artist I at the time, I was thinking – painter. I pursued this goal right up until the college years, where and when the world or ‘Art’ really opened up to me..or maybe I opened up to it.
Since then, I have followed the dream, using many mediums as my canvas. I find myself to be now If asked, to be an investigator into all things artistic. That is to say, I paint, sculpt, carve, and make jewelry, all in one week.
