Hello, My name is Joye and I am an artist at heart. I feel compelled to create a painting, sweater, good food, music, or whatever everyday. I am a mother of 4, with beautiful grandchildren!
I absolutely LOVE to paint portraits, design sweaters, play violin, cook vegetarian, paint oils, watercolors, design pottery, and whatever comes into my head. In other words, I LOVE to CREATE!! That is what I write about!!
I sell prints of my artwork at my Art Shoppe Page, check it out!
There are not enough hours in the day for me to create and do all the projects, read all the books, see all the things in this world I would like to. Sometimes I feel very scattered and do not know what to work on next. I am a painter primarily, so therefore everyday I work at least a small amount in my studio. Since I have so many varied interests stemming from childhood on, I have decided to devote each month to one specific creative project more thoroughly. Come with me on this Creative Journey. I am going to vary each creative activity every month starting in May 2013.
My May Creative Adventure is TEXTILES
Tuesday: Thoughts and Inspirations
Wednesday: Literature of the Week
Thursday: My Creative Journey
Friday: My Studio and Other Art
Playing the violin has been part of my life since I was 8, as was knitting. I have studied painting since 1987 with various teachers as well as at The Academy of the Fine Arts in Philadelphia, Pa. And as far as my cooking interest, well I like to eat, and feel a vegetarian lifestyle is important to my overall health.
I happen to be an enthusiastic, optimistic person who likes to make things and wants to meet other like minded people!
Please feel free to join me in my conversation about creativity, music, fabric, painting…….
