Artists Around the World (blog hop)

Hi Everyone!
I was asked by the lovely and talented Gracie Howle to join the Artists around the world blog hop! Everyone was asked to answer four questions. I am not someone who likes to talk about myself but I will give it my best! 

Question 1
Why do you do what you do?

I can't remember a time when I didn't draw or make some kind of craft. My Mom always had stuff for me and my brothers to paint and my grandma owned a ceramic shop that we spent a lot of time in. I really miss that! I get bored easily and art is my go to. I love it! I need it! It is my getaway.

Question 2
How does your work differ from others of its genre?

I guess that it differs because of the medium I use? I love to mix acrylics and colored pencil which  as far as I know most aren't doing.  I have been told that I have a style that people recognize.

Question 3
How does your creative process work?

Good question :)
I think this depends on what I am in the mood for. I like to create things fast! Sometimes I might feel a little more ambitious and paint larger scale work but mostly I grab a piece of 4 x 6 watercolor paper, paint it with acrylics, draw a little lady on it and color. I don't really think to hard about it. Sometimes I will feel inspired by a picture or other art and try something like that. I have done more of that since joining Lifebook this year. The funnest art course I have ever taken by the way!

Question 4
What are you working on now?

Right now I am designing the Christmas board program for Penny Black Rubber Stamps. I have been  with them for 12 years! I can only show you a little peek of what I am doing as it is top secret until after the paper crafters show later this month!

Here are some of the pieces I have done just recently!

Thank you so much everyone for stopping in and reading my post! Please be sure to head over to Gracie's blog and read her story!!

Have a great day!
