I live in, and grew up in the Pacific NW, a side effect of this is that the weather often allows you stay inside and "play". I love to spend time being creative, it's what makes me truly happy. I grew up playing with pen and ink, pencil, pastels, oil pastels and stained glass. As I got older I ventured out into painting, first with watercolors, then acrylics and I've got my eye on water-soluable oils and glass mosaics. I've toyed with colored pencils, rubberstamping, Copic markers, charcoal, collage and Zentangle (tm). Other ways I've found to be creative include playing with plants in my yard and decorating my house. I think I could find a way to be creative doing anything. I can't imagine only creating in one medium and that will be reflected in my gallery.
