In 2014, after several years of designing websites, I started dabbling in more “traditional”, tactile types of art. What started as an interest in art for stress relief became a full blown love affair with all things art. Since then, I’ve experimented with: mandalas, watercolor, jewelry making, mixed media, illustration, wood burning, acrylics and creating texture, hand lettering, book binding, and all sorts of DIY/craft projects.
One of the unexpected bonuses of exploring art has been the joy that comes from sharing what I’ve learned with my friends and family, and learning from them as well. My interest has also led me to explore other artists’ work, which has been so inspirational for me.
