This 10" x 8", 112 luster paged book is filled with humor, insight and an unbridled passion for art.
The author takes us on her personal journey that shows us how to find our own inspiration and demonstrates how that turned into her own tangible artwork.
Full color pages explode with her creations while keeping an emotional balance in her writing by not taking herself to serious.
I was raised in northern California in a strict religious family. There was lots of love and lots of family. The summers were made of riding bikes and roller skating. I knew I had an artistic talent when I was in 5th grade but no attention was given to it growing up.I majored in Art while in college where I was probably the happiest, but I kept hearing that I should get a "real" job. I've spent most of my life working in traditional positions for traditional companies. So throughout the years I ignored my gifts and passions and worked at other things. Within the last 20 years I slowly started to give in to my creative urges. Designing inside and outside spaces, sculpting, drawing, creating 3 dimensional objects, painting and jewelry making. I found my bliss and will never give it up again. Art is my essence. To create. This is what I should be doing, need to be doing and must be doing. I can't imagine my life without it.
