Happy Monday Everyone! I hope you all had a wonderful weekend and are staying warm. Today I'm participating in a Creative Blog Hop! The hop was started to inspire those that take part, to meet new people and experience different styles of art along the way.
I was invited to participate in this hop by my good friend Carrie Avery. Please take the time to visit her blog, show her some love and enjoy her beautiful work. Carrie is an amazing woman and I'm truly honored to call a friend. She is the mastermind and owner of Paper Wings Production. She has a beautiful vintage style with a french flair. Her passion for creating and share her techniques shines through her work. So if you're not familiar with Carrie or Paper Wings Production, you need to get familiar!! Okay let's get to it!
What am I working on right now?
I'm working on new mixed media canvases. This is what's on my table right now. I'm thinking she's going to be a bohemian fairy but you never know. The process may take me to a different place so we'll just have to wait and see what happens.
I'm not sure how much my work differs from other artist. I just try and stay true to myself. I base everything on my moods and life experiences. So each piece is a part of my present, past or hopes for the future. They all have hidden meanings to me and I hope that others will find personal connections to them as well.
Why do I create?
Why do I create?
I create because I have to, it's who I am. I've been creating as long as I can remember and I look at everything through wondrous eyes. I find inspiration everywhere and wonder about what could be. I simply love the creative process.
My creative process is flexible. Sometimes I start with a concept sketch in my art journal and other times I start with a background. It just depends on how I'm feeling. I don't focus on a process or technique, I just start and continue moving forward until I feel like it's done. I enjoy the process of just doing, letting that flow state take over. To me, that's the beauty of creating.
To keep up with me, visit my Facebook page, I post there on a regular basis and share works in progress along with things that inspire me. If you're interested in seeing my current product line, visit my Etsy shop: LittleHoneyBeeStudio.
