i'm keeley! I'm in my mid-30's, married, and live in Canada's capital city, Ottawa. we have a pet herd consisting of 2 dogs and 2 cats. it's always exciting here. i made 2008 my year to get back to art, and 2009 has been dubbed my Brave New Year. I'm leaving a tonne behind me and moving forward toward what i enjoy in life: art.
Artwise? I enjoy anything that can make a mark on another surface:
homemade charcoal bits from a campfire on a nearby rock will do if the mood strikes. these days i've been doing some multimedia pieces that use watercolour, ink, acrylic, and plaster on canvas. I sometimes do linocut prints, and like to use images i capture in photos as subject matter - i have been taking pictures sporatically since my first photography class in highschool, and am loving my digital Nikon SLR lately.
I was inspired by Gary, and Suzi and Wyanne and my art friends over on the nerdfighter ning site to actually "pick up a brush" again after leaving it behind for a career i loathed. I've recently discovered Jared Knight too! As I've grown, and priorities have shifted, I've found solace in my journey back to art. I was inspired enough to get back in, and create more than I have in literally, a decade, in 8 months. Now I'm looking at expanding - into the online, international world - the internet! I uploaded my first video about a month or so ago and am thinking about what comes next for my 4th as we speak.
I'll post some art bits as they come :)
I also have a couple of other blogs that will have a variety of great art conversations, pictures, inspirations etc. on them: http://jaredknight.ning.com/profile/pineapplegrassbracelet http://nerdfighters.ning.com/profile/keeley http://gottabekd32.blogspot.com/ http://www.youtube.com/papplegrassbracelet
