That’s me, Lindi Stevenson and I have called suburban Richmond, Virginia home for the majority of the last 25 years. I live in a small but homey cottage with my longtime husband, three unique children, and two felines.
Having attended both Florida State University and Virginia Tech studying art, I have worked in a variety of fields from TV news photography to watercolor reproductions to space design with many others in between. Exploring paint, collage, fabric, ceramics, printing and bookmaking, I have been creating handmade gifts and teaching for as long as I can remember. Art journaling is my latest passion and a perfect extension for my love of all things mixed media.
Despite years of art school, I am finding ways to overcome the deplorable inner critic living in my head and use familiar materials with a new found joy. I like to get messy (can’t avoid it actually!), try new techniques and HAVE FUN. I am finally learning that when you let yourself create without worrying or even knowing about the end result – magic happens.
Art in Real Life is about sharing that magic with those who may not even believe they have an inner artist. Taking the art out of the gallery experience and into real life everyday for everyone drives my workshops.
Fun Art, not necessarily Fine Art!
I am grateful for this little spot on the world-wide-web and look forward to making it a cozy home full of beautiful, fun and creative little sparks. I hope to share some of what inspires me and see what inspires you as well
When not in the studio, I can usually be found cooking (eating!), teaching, treasure hunting, gardening or relaxing somewhere with my family and friends near or on the largest body of water available.
Thank you for taking a look and sharing this moment with me. I am grateful.
