Today I’m kicking it old school…using triangles, a straight edge and ruler like in drafting class years ago. For weeks I’ve been working on a client project that involves drawing 53 locations around the world. Learning so much about each place as I do research. About a quarter of the way thru the project…💛 #TrinaDraws365 #CelebratingTheCreativeJourney
Super excited to announce that the 2015 Snowman Collection is now available online! Several years ago, I began making little snowman friends using discarded jars, vintage trims, broken jewelry findings, buttons and beads, old book pages and lots of sparkle. They have become one of my most popular products and customers look forward to adding a new one (or more!) to their collection every year. Each piece continues to be made with joy, and as a result, I believe each figure is infused with a great deal of happiness. I made 200 this year. Find yours here!
My journey began in a small town in Ohio where I was a math nerd who loved to create + visit her grandma whose house was filled with Goodwill treasures. She could’ve been a star on that hoarders show. One day I realized I loved creating more than numbers and went to art school. That changed my world.
Now I spend my days collecting, selling + using vintage finds in my artwork + journals.
In this blog, I’ll share thoughts and ideas about art and creativity. I’ll invite you into my studio and bring you along on my travels and junking adventures. I’ll announce new projects and show dates, share tips, talk about art journaling and classes, plus so much more. Together, we’ll celebrate the creative journey!
Thanks for stopping by … now go shop!
