My process for creating art

My love for making things has been with me throughout my entire life.  I have always had a creative mind and a need to work with my hands.  As the youngest child in a family of 5 kids, I could often be found off to the side, making crafts out of felt, shells, stones and other found objects.  I would melt wax in my easy bake oven and make candles.  I would make jewelry and paint on the walls in my bedroom.   The creative process brought me such joy and a great reprieve from the active household that was dominated by my 4 older brothers. Art gave me confidence, solace, recognition and a way to stand out from the crowd.  Art has always been a mainstay for me and I believe it has helped define me.    

My artistic process varies depending on what medium I am working with.  I don’t spend a lot of time on the front end with sketching or planning.  I usually just dive in!  I will say, this approach can lead to disaster and I have been known to discard a project and start anew; however, I as I have gotten older, I have learned to stick with the process and see if I can work my magic to make the piece come together.   The end goal is to produce art that is precise, professional, colorful, bold and desirable.
