Introduction Basically a self-taught artist, I have always been happiest creating. I started my daily heART on January 9th, 2011 although it took me 250 days to start my blog! I needed something to keep me accountable to being creative every day, and making something 365 was just the thing. I have some simple rules for myself: no found hearts - every heart must be created by me (one exception - the cloud!). I try to stay away from simply arranging things into heart shapes and create from a deeper and more thoughtful place. I avoid the temptation to seek out heart ideas so that I can create only from what's in me, not from some outside influence. This has been an amazing journey of artistic growth and commitment!
Interests making art including soldered jewelry, collage, painting furniture, home design and decorating, my family, my friends, shopping, pets, gardening.
