1) Tell us about yourself.
I am a wife, mother, and grandmother who loves to paint in many different mediums, embroidery, needle felt, scrapbook, and just about any other craft that comes along. I love to experiment with new techniques and play with colors. My favorite subjects are landscapes and florals, I do have fun with cartoon type subjects as well
2) What are your preferred mediums and art scale (miniature, large art, etc)
I love to work in the ACEO size format as it is easy to carry along with me. I also like working on any size up to appx 18X24. I have painted on saw blades both straight and round and enjoyed that very much. I mostly like to work in Watercolor which included watercolor crayons and pencils, and Acrylics. I love to do drawing in graphite. I have done oils but I am too impatient for those. I also love working with fibers be it needle felting or embroidery.
3) What are your inspirations.
I get my inspriation from nature, and from challenges and themes issued in the artist groups I belong too.
4) Describe your art style.
I don't know that I have a "style" I am still trying to find myself as an artist. I am not so sure if I want to be defined with a specific "style" anyway as I get so much enjoyment from trying new things.
5) Do you do anything other than painting (jewelry, crafts)
I make jewelry, do mosaics. I have also made several porcelain dolls and enjoy that, and have done ceramics in the past. I enjoy making my own Decorative paper also, which I use in making journals and mini albums.
6) If you blog, what is your blog link.
7) Where do you sell online?
I sell a little on Ebay under the username lazyhawk
My Shop on Etsy is: http://www.etsy.com/shop/Lazyhawk
8) Are you opened to commission work?
Yes, I would love the opportunity to work on some projects for others.
9) What was your favorite piece of work? If you have a photo, include it.
I have a lot of favorites, here is one of my graphite sketches and one of my watercolors
8) Do you sell in a brick & mortar shop? If so where? No I don't.
