Everything I do, I do it for you...
Something tells me a lot of you have uttered a phrase similar to, "I can't draw a stick figure!" at some point in your lives. I'm here to prove you wrong...and hopefully make you feel real good about yourselves in the process.
I spend my time researching and organizing ideas to help you connect to the arts and our community in a hands-on, refreshing way. What can I do that you'll love? What would you be most proud of creating? What do you connect to the most? What could be fresh and fun and creative--but also easy to try? I brainstorm and read and google (and google some more) and sometimes just fuss around in my studio making up fun projects for us. And then I work and rework ways to show them to everyone, to spread the word, to grow our little community of for-fun painters. And I take a lot of pictures of it all. Like, a lot.
I'm driven to the endless hours of thinking and making and carrying those tupperware boxes across the universe by the idea that I might help someone find a connection to creating, or more commonly, to help someone relieve just a little stress from their life. Life is hard (and normal and routine). You deserve a to take a break, to try a new thing, or to laugh for a minute. Art can do all that! It can heal your mind, relieve pain, inspire you. And you deserve to try it without judgement! Art offers so much opportunity for growth and experimenting and catharsis. I have found solace in creating and sharing it, and I want to help you feel that too.
I'll keep adding posts about the ways art is good for you, new project ideas I've been messing with, and long gushing posts just like this one. You just keep showing up to play!
