I have been an artist for as long as I can remember. I started drawing when I was a little girl and never stopped. My mother was an artist and I used to watch her draw and paint and was mesmerized by the beautiful drawings and paintings she created and I wanted to be like her. I would draw on any scrap piece of paper I could find as a child, and I still have some of those drawings I did as a child.
As the years grew, my love for art grew as well. I started out with charcoal, pencil and chalk and then started painting with oils. My mother and I would take an art class here and there at the local community college and that’s where my love for watercolors began. I love the way the colors flow together and make the most beautiful painting.
As a child I loved the stained glass windows in our church. The colors were so beautiful when the sun shone through them. I knew one day I would learn to make them. I have become an accomplished stained glass artisan and it is a passion of mine.
I have always enjoyed doing crafts, and have even taught craft classes. My mind just loves to stay busy and I have to be creating something all the time. I started doing pebble art and vintage jewelry art in the last couple of years and find it so fun and satisfying. People always find it amazing that I can look at a rock and make a picture out of it, but I see beauty in rocks as well as so many things. I love being able to take vintage jewelry and make a piece of art from it. I find it very satisfying to be able to take someone’s grandmother’s jewelry and make them a piece of art they can cherish for the rest of their lives and pass down from generation to generation rather than let the jewelry sit in a jewelry box and be ignored. I am also a muralist. Having a wall as a canvas is so much fun because you have so much space to work with.
I love making jewelry from mother nature’s beauty…sea shells, rocks and gem stones. I don’t make jewelry you’re going to see just anywhere. Every piece is one of a kind and tells a story.
I have recently started doing acrylic pour paintings. There are so many art mediums out there that I’ve yet to try.
I chose the name Eclecticity for my company because I think it pretty much says who I am. I’m very eclectic and my artwork is the same.
I guess I can sum my bio up with this statement:
“You’re never too old to learn something new and there’s so much beauty in the world to enjoy and be created!”
