I was asked to do a post about me and to show my face, so hi, here I am! I took this picture of myself last year, there's not a lot of photos of me knocking around, thousands of my kid's though! lol!
So, here's my mini bio -
I have always loved being creative, especially in fiber arts, I even went to art college to pursue this, however I came to realise that I have not the ambitious drive to do that as a career, so it was shelved for a while. Work, travel, marriage, and kid's later, I decided to satrt again. Firstly, I wanted to re-learn how to knit, and was taught by a wonderful friend at a knitting group, this led to the discovery of felting, which I fell in love with. I began to make bags, and bowls, and loved to make them, but i began to wonder what to do with all my little creations. It was about this time that I also discovered Etsy, and the natural progression was to start selling my wares there. This has been a lovely way to continue my art, and make a little step towards a more self-sustaining lifestyle.
I live very happily in the Adirondacks, in Upstate New York, with my husband, two kids, dog and two cats, sometimes working at a local bookstore, and sometimes working on my felted creations. Life is good! ♥
When I made a whole bunch of things to put in to the New leaf Art Gallery, one of the new items I designed was this awesome bowl. It is a beautiful chianti colored yarn fron Brown Sheep, with a lovely lace detail wrapped around the base of the bowl. I love the way it came out,very victoriana in feel but with a modern twist, and I'm working on some for my Etsy shop. Fall is my favorite season, I love it's rich, warm colors, and this purple is definitely one of those. I hope you enjoy it too. Enjoy! ♥

The Storque blog on Etsy has a wonderful series of short interviews with various Etsy artists, it's such fun to read about fellow Etsians, see where they live, what they make, and what inspires them. I thought it would be cool to share a different one with you every Sunday, I hope you enjoy them as much as I do. Have a wonderful long weekend, and enjoy! ♥

The Little Coven
Anyway, my drawings are mainly about children who are lost in thought, the kind who daydream and press their noses against the glass. Little spectators with imaginary friends and sometimes the whole world on their minds, but experiencing the magic of childhood nonetheless. I guess if you asked me to describe my art, that is what I would say.
