My grandmother used to say, “Be careful what you wish for; you just might get it.” How right she was!!
In 2019, I was booked solid through mid-December with in-person events all over southcentral Pennsylvania but knew it wasn’t the direction I wanted to go. So, I decided not to schedule any more workshops, retreats, or clients for the new year.
“I just want some time to rethink my business plan and clarify my vision.” TIME and CLARITY- two things 2020 gave many of us in bucket loads!!! Grateful for the opportunity (a silver lining to the Covid cloud), I’m moving forward with a greater focus on being a freelance artist- paintings, illustrations, and pattern designs.
My original art and prints sold very well in 2020 and now I’m ready to offer the images on a wider range of products. (A big chunk of 2020 was spent learning Adobe Illustrator, InDesign, and Photoshop.) I use these new skills to upload images on Redbubble, a great site that supports artists and provides a platform for customers to find some unique gifts, clothing, and home decor items.
Here’s just a sample of items available on my Redbubble shop. Visit Redbubble to see the rest!
2021 is a new beginning! I hope it brings you greater health, joy, well-being, and LOTS and LOTS of love!!
