I’ve always been the ‘Artsy Fartsy’ type but in the mid 80’s I was bitten by the beading bug! had seen some beautiful beaded earrings made by a neighbor and that was it for me.
Over the years I’ve learned many different stitches and techniques and loved every minute of it! then in Early 2016 I found out I was going to be a Gramma so decided to teach myself to crochet as I had always wanted to learn and this was the perfect time. you know, baby booties, hats, blankets! so that started another chapter in my creative life and have gone on to make much more than baby stuff !
The little animals I’m in love with making are called Amigurumi. OK, so now for the next chapter that I have started in my creative life. At the beginning of 2020 I resolved to start painting. I wanted to start small and also wanted to find a canvas that was very inexpensive. I chose rocks! They are so abundant around where I live and come in all sorts of sizes! I’m loving it! I still love my beading and crochet too! Hence my new name, ‘Birdlady Creations’ !
About My Art
I’ve always had a difficult time getting my work out there to be sold. Putting it in shops has never been really successful. Maybe I just never had it in the right places.
I do know that when I am there with my work it sells better! I DO think it tends to sell itself but for some reason I have to be there with it! People love to wear my jewelry and display my window hangings and rock paintings and crocheted creatures.
Sometimes I think people just need these things in their lives.
