About me

Gender Female
Industry Arts
Location Charlotte, North Carolina, United States
Introduction I am a girl who loves creating things and working with various art forms. I was living in Vancouver, British Columbia and am now residing in Charlotte, NC for the past 2 years after marrying my amazing husband who was born and raised here. I am usually inspired by music, design, textiles, nature and my Scandinavian Heritage. I like to work with acrylics when working with paints. I also love to use charcoal, graphite, collage, recycled items (like bottle caps, cork, plastics, etc.), clay, wool and whatever other mediums catch my fancy. I think all art should express who we are, where we come from and be as individual as we are. This blog is to connect with family and friends back home as well to express myself and keep my sanity. "Creative people are curious, flexible, persistent and independent with a tremendous spirit of adventure and a love of play." - Henri Matisse (1869-1954)
