What is your art or craft and how long have you been creating? My main craft is photography. I took a photography class in high school which was fun and stirred my interest, but I didn't really start shooting on a regular basis until I got my first digital camera in college. Since then, I have shot tens of thousands of photographs and my camera is never far from my side!
I also enjoy quilting. I am a fifth generation quilter and love cuddling up with a handmade quilt on a cold winter day.
What other things do you do besides creating? I love spending time with my amazing husband, family and friends. They have given me so much encouragement to take my photography to the next level and open my Etsy shop, I could not have come this far without their support. I also enjoy reading a good book and listening to all different types of music.
It's great that you have wonderful friends and family who support you. What inspires you? Both the beauty in this world and my amazing mom, Jan Douglas. My mom is a quilt designer and recently started her own quilt pattern company - www.jandouglasdesign.com that is growing by leaps and bounds. She has been a huge source of inspiration to me in believing in yourself and your dream, never giving up and just getting out there and doing what you love. She is the best!
Your mom's quilts are amazing! Are there any artists that inspire you? The artist whose work has most influenced my art is Carlos Jacanamijoy. He is a Columbian artist who paints vibrant, abstract paintings of the Amazon jungle, which is where he grew up. He isn't afraid of color and texture and ever since I saw his first paintings at the age of 16, I have been in love and inspired to look at the world as I imagine he might!
What are five words that describe you? passionate honest loyal determined hardworking
