I'm writing to share some exciting news. I've recently started creating and uploading my artwork to a website called FineArtAmerica.com! This website not only allows you to purchase prints of artwork, but also carries tote bags, coffee mugs, beach towels and many other items! It has been a bit of a dream come true to see my artwork come to life in that way.
A few things lead to this new endeavor. The first happened last year while I was nearing the end of my pregnancy with my son. I had been put on 'couch rest' and found myself quite bored and also stressed. Since I wasn't able to relieve my stress through my usual methods of working out, or having a glass of wine, I decided to start painting again. I ended up painting a belly cast that I had made when I was 34 weeks pregnant. By the end of the painting, I was amazed at how much less stressed I felt. It was such a relaxing activity for me. Being on 'couch rest' definitely renewed my interest in painting again.
The second thing that has lead to this endeavor is that I have unfortunately had a reduction in hours at my full time job. I don't know how long it will last but I'm currently spending my days as a stay at home mom. While waiting for work to pick back up at my job, I decided to spend my extra time pursing my creative passions. I am hoping to build up a nice little collection of artwork during this time. Below is my latest painting that I've completed.
Please check out my profile page on Fine Art of America and spread the word. I think it's a great place for unique gifts and I have already ordered a few items for myself from there. I'm excited to let my creativity run wild!

I like to run, take pictures and write. I've combined all three in this blog.
