My first art demonstration video!!

I've wanted for a long time to be able to make videos like the ones I love watching on youtube.  To share techniques, teach others and eventually create online classes.  I built a set up for my camera and a space to work and did a little test video a few weeks ago.

Test Video

Its was so much fun and so ridiculously thrilling to see my work that way.  After finishing a few projects and a death in the family, I was finally able to work on my first full video.  I'm learning a lot of what to do and what not to do and hope that I can quickly reach the point where I can produce the quality videos that I'm aiming for.  I'm very pleased with what I've been able to do so far.


I'm so excited to have reached this long time goal and I'm excited to see what's next!  Any feedback would be appreciated!  Enjoy!

More trading going on!

I completed some new things for trade on AFA.

The first are for another 2 Sleeve Art Doll swap.

These are for a swap I am hosting for Halloween themed moo houses.

The others are for a swap hosted by my daughter, Sarah, for Beeswax APCs.

Another Commission Completed!

Here is my latest commission.  My interpretation of St. Cecelia, the Patron Saint of Musicians.  I had so much fun with this one and I'm so happy with how she turned out.

I've also been working on building a set up to make photo and video tutorials and used this piece in a little bit of a test run with the new set up.

Another commission with be in the works as well as new items for Christmas.  Tutorials in the works as well so stay tuned and let me know what you'd like to see!

More Art Trading

After a quick trip to visit Mom and Dad I'm back and working on some more art trading.  These are for a Zetti themed (one of my all time fave themes) PAT (pick-a-theme) swap at AFA.

Gearing up for an exhausting week of college orientation, way too early mornings and a road trip to see some amazing Drum Corps but hoping to fit some art in there somewhere.

Productive Week

I finished a couple more pieces and they are now available in my Etsy shop.

One of them was inspired by a challenge by Sarah Trumpp in her 50 Canvases in 2014 series.  This particular challenge was to sew on the canvas.  I have a limited bead selection so its not as elaborate as it could have been but I think it adds nicely to the canvas.

Check them out and check out Sarah's awesomeness over at Wonderstrange Arts.

Wishing you all a fabulous 4th!!
