I started making art as a young child and continued through college and beyond, but never thought about trying to sell it. My primary creative outlet has always been making cards for my loved ones, which segued into creating small scale paper collage. Scissors and glue are my trusty tools, and I have a serious paper fetish! I live for details so I tend to work small, making this competition a challenge. I've finally faced my fear of judgment and feel ready to share my art with the world, with Art Ties Us being one of my first forays into the public forum. I've been working in the arts, supporting my fellow creators for nearly a decade, and now it's time to follow their lead and put myself out there. Best of luck to all of the talented artists participating this year!
