About Almost Artist
Alice, of Alice in Wonderland: “Would you tell me, please, which way I ought to go from here?”
Cheshire Cat: “That depends a good deal on where you want to get to.”
Alice: “I don’t much care where.”
Cheshire Cat: “Then it doesn’t much matter which way you go.”
Alice: “So long as I get somewhere.”
Cheshire Cat: “Oh, you’re sure to do that, if only you walk long enough.”
I am a human female in the middle of my adventures of life. After taking a moment to examine where I was going in life, I realized that I lost my direction somewhere along the way…
My journey began with my parents encouragement to express myself through art. I first began to create with clay, and later moved on to group art lessons. In my early teens, I focused my work on paper with pen and ink.
Then came the teenage years! And with it, the moods and all the other joys of puberty and high school. During this time, my art moved on to painting, specifically abstract and with acrylics. It was during this time, at a Commerical art high school, where I created the portfolio that took me further along in artistic discovery, and to my acceptance to art school.
It was in college where I hit a major roadblock and discovered that painting in oils wasn’t going to work for me due to my migraines. Sculpture was not for me. After a brief stint in graphic design, learning the ins and outs of an Apple computer, I found a love of color study. I rounded out my years of formal education with an obsession for books and the letterpress.
After college, I was forced to enter the real world. I was able to navigate my way through many jobs using my knowledge of computers.
Somewhere along my journey, which included both good and bad adventures, I lost touch with expressing myself though art. Through this blog, I will try to find some of that again.
For now, I am focusing on photography and animals. At times there may also be a dollop of baking, and small graphic projects for family and friends. Thoughts of making jewel again also flutter through.
I currently live in NY State with my husband and two Bengal cats. The latter 2 are more often than not the subjects of my photography.
