My name is Teri and I live in the Central Valley in California with my husband and our many loved and rescued pets. Our children are grown and busy with their own careers and lives, and although I did experience the “empty nest” syndrome it wasn't long before our spare rooms became my studio. I am a Registered Nurse of over 20 years working in the Critical Care arena and I love my job. It was the best decision I ever made to pick a profession I am so passionate about. But when I leave the hospital at night the first thing on my mind is, “What am I going to create today?" Working 12 hour shifts are long and hard as I get older, but it allows me to enjoy many more days off to play.
I have always loved art, all types and kinds. When I went to school they still taught classes like drawing and painting, jewelry making, ceramics and so on and I took every single one of them available. So today the phrase “jack of all trades, master of none” rings true to heart. I love all mediums and all types from art journals, of which I have at least 10 going at one time, mixed media and assemblage, painting with acrylics and watercolors. I even attempt some jewelry from time to time. I have to say there is so much master talent out there that so graciously share their tips and how to's with us all, the sky's the limit or maybe more.
I remember the first time I laid eyes on these Relics & Artifacts® blanks my head exploded with ideas and things I wanted to make, and still does. When I see all the gorgeous art creations coming from this Tribe I'm just speechless with admiration. I hope you enjoy my creation influenced by Teesha Moore to welcome Spring and brighten your day.
